This is information
about me.

Hello there! My name is Sofia Nóbrega and I’m a UI/UX Designer. I am passionate about the intersection of art and software and have found a home in this field. I enjoy being creative and getting crafty, whether it’s through crochet, knitting, cooking, or other activities. When I’m not designing, I love to travel and explore new places, especially if they offer a peaceful escape.

As a problem solver and empathetic individual, I strive to make a lasting, positive impact on people’s experiences through good design. By using data-driven and innovative solutions, I worked to align business goals and facilitate a humane and enjoyable digital experience for all users. I take pride in my ability to frame problems and deliver value-driven design solutions that drive smart business decisions.
