About me

About me

My name is Pau Escofet Marias. UX designer, art director and FE developer. Digital transformation enthusiast and fan of Lean UX with a global vision of digital production: from the ideation phases to the development processes.
More than 20 years of experience in UX design (Facilitation and organization of Workshops, User Journeys, User Research, User tests, People Definition and Prototyping) as well as Development and Organization of FE and leadership of agile projects.

Photographer and graphic designer by training. Self-taught front-end programmer. He currently works in product development as a UX Concepter.

However, during my professional career I have worked as an errand boy, photographer, graphic designer, web designer, art director, front-end programmer, professor of programming applied to design, UX designer, product designer, product owner... and surely I still left something.
If you want detailed information about all this, you can consult my professional experience.

Extremely pragmatic and often opinionated, I don't like to leave things halfway. As a UX designer I like to attend to data when a decision needs to be made.

A little bit about me

I was born on a hot July 5, 1976 in Gavà, a town near Barcelona. I studied there until high school and later I did my higher studies in Barcelona.

In 2001 I moved to Blanes, Girona and from there I worked in different companies as a designer, always digital environments.

Since 2013 I live in Munich, Germany.
