Lucia Bustamante

+6 years of experience shipping products and collaborating with cross-functional product teams, with a passion for turning complex problems into simple and engaging experiences.

I currently work at as a Lead Product Designer

I’m a deeply curious Multidisciplinary Designer based in Uruguay with a background in Industrial Design, and a taste for good design.

I have experience working in small design studios, advertising agencies, startups, and big companies, so I can adapt easily to different environments.

I have a bachelor's in computer processing, but I discovered my passion for Design in 2005, the year I graduated in Graphic Design. Since then I have experimented in many design fields.

My experience in the Software/Product industry is working and collaborating with Product and tech teams from discovery to launch. I deeply care about the emotional state of the user at every step of the product journey. I feel a deep interest in other areas such as Service Design, Product Management, Voice UI, AR/VR. 

I have experience designing SaaS, B2B, B2C, and B2G products, and collaborating with diverse teams in dynamic, rapid growth environments. I’m also a Design Culture and design ethics advocate.

I’m very interested in social causes and volunteering, especially in being part of causes that promote gender equality. Working in a male-dominated field, and living the challenges of being a woman in tech, encouraged me to found a Women in IT community.

I also love to contribute to the designer's community and I strongly believe in the power of collaboration and sharing knowledge.

I love ramen 🍜, summer, dogs, long trips, meetups and conferences, horror movies, rollercoasters, documentaries about history.
