luis antonio ramirez castillo

I'm a product designer, former teacher, amateur illustrator, but overall, a freethinker. I love to solve problems through design thinking, crafting meaningful experiences and interfaces for companies and their customers. Currently in Montevideo, Uruguay.


what I do quite well

Big picture thinker

Visualizing a problem as a map allows me to identify multiple meanings, besides the most literal appearance.

Adaptable realist

When short times, limited resources or wrong starting directions appeared, I often found the opportunity of building a viable project.

Skills multiplier

Mentoring students and pro designers allowed me to be surrounded by talented people - and gave me the chance to learn from them.
