UX/UI Designer & UI Developer

I'm Teresa, a Web Designer from sunny Lisbon, Portugal.

Over the last 14 years, while helping businesses and users to meet their goals, I have gained an extensive understanding of the whole project life-cycle, being able to provide efficient solutions all the way, from UX Research & Design, to UI Design & Development (HTML/CSS).

As looking away from the screen from time to time is good for your eyes, I love gardening, in the balcony and indoors, where I keep too many plants while humans can still move around. Caring for plants gives me super-powers. I also enjoy pocket photography and exploration and puzzle video games.
