I am Vivian, a Game UX/UI Designer. I am a broad designer with eleven years of experience in digital products (web/mobile) and five years exclusively on UX/UI for apps and games.
Born and raised in Brazil, I have a bachelor’s degree in Game Design and came to Canada in 2017 to pursue my dream of working in the game industry.
Currently, I am working at Relic Entertainment at the Company of Heroes team. The last projects I worked on were Kabam’s Marvel Contest of Champions mobile and Minecraft’s PlayStation/PSVR platform.
I am extremely passionate about games. I have a very keen eye for, positive and collaborative approach to the game UX/UI Design. In the early stages of the game development, I utilize the player’s centred perspective to capture potential problems. Providing insights into usability, designing intuitive, innovative user interfaces and experiences with simplicity to enhance, ideate and create players’ experiences across a comprehensive scope of types.
I have a strong desire to learn something new continuously. It is a true passion!
I work hard to that both make sense and make a difference. I’m genuinely curious about people’s minds. I tend to spend a lot of time thinking and investigating the needs and experiences of others.
“Vivian is a very proactive individual and a great benefit to any team, she has a passion for games, a keen eye, and a positive and collaborative approach to her work. Her ability to provide insights into usability, and response time on suggested solutions are sometimes ready before they are asked for. Vivian has a great perspective to capture the potential users experience across a wide scope of player types and accessibility, bringing visibility to the team in a tangible and productive outline that can be worked into a schedule early in the development cycle.” – DJ Stiner, Sr. PM at Microsoft
Bonus: When I’m not working, you can find me reading something about UX, playing some games – especially action-adventures, RPGs or old school ones, inventing some recipe, walking in the park with my Corgi or painting some watercolor drawings!
I also love a great coffee any given time of the day.
