About

Portrait of Rafael QuesadaI have worked in the Design Industry for the last 10 years.  From creative agencies, design consultancy to product design.  I’m currently the principal Product Designer of BUX’s first commission free stock investing app – BUX Zero.

I graduated from the University of (sunny) Almería, Spain with a degree in Computer Science. However, since I was young art and design have always been a major part of my life and therefore I decided to follow my hobbies and move into Design and UX. My engineering mind and creative heart have helped me to understand and create amazing connections with developers and other members of the product team.

I have learned and gained great experiences in all the phases of a product, from discovery to prototyping and delivery to iteration. I love working together with the team and I like to guide decisions based on user-centered design.

When I’m not at the office, I’m a proud dad, I write or design random stuff, be a photographer, collaborate in an olive oil project all whilst being a frustrated guitarist with 9 years of music studies behind me.
