Hola! I'm Barbara Araya

I'm a Chilean Product Designer living in San Francisco, CA, with a background in Visual and Graphic Design.

I started my design journey 10 years ago by getting a Graphic Design degree in Chile. In 2012, I worked as a Visual Designer for a worldwide social media company based in San Francisco, which opened my way to think about the user as a human-centered design. In 2017, I moved to the Bay Area, where I had the opportunity to study User Experience Design at UC Berkeley Extension.
I'm always looking for new challenges and constantly evolving personally and as a designer, continuously learning to develop new skills. I'm passionate about working on Human-centered design projects with social impact and collaborating in multidisciplinary teams to contribute my skills, aiming for a healthy and open communication environment that leads us to learn and improve professionally.
When not designing, I volunteer at +Más Mujeres en UX Chile (More Women in UX), creating content for the community blog and highlighting inspiring women in UX (in Spanish). I also volunteered as a mentor at +Más Mujeres in UX Latam. I write on Medium and enjoy photography, hiking, and knitting. 
I'd love to hear from you!... Get in touch with me at barbara@278studio.com.
