Borja de Vega

“As customer journeys become increasingly complex, and users interact with brands across a number of channels — customer service, retail, campaigns, websites, social media, apps, events — experience designers must navigate these new realms to craft and deliver end-to-end experiences across touchpoints, from definition to modeling until product delivery.”

Throughout my 10 years of experience I’ve had the pleasure to work with international agencies such as Wunderman, FullSix, Gyro International and Fnac, and I am currently working as Head of Design at Opinno, publisher of MIT Technology Review & Harvard Business Review.

Design Strategy

I focus on strategic design, with a solid background on Art, Visual Language, Interaction, Media and Identity, with ability to apply creativity to deadline-oriented projects, knowledge of design software, problem solving, project management and always committed to quality. By delivering consistent products and services, managing both their creative and technical aspects, I’ve helped every company I’ve worked with to grow and support their bottom line.

Business Impact

When Design is applied to the strategic objectives of the company,  integrating business objectives with creative solutions, the success rate for innovation and economic development improves. Design is the new business language, it translates insights into actionable solutions, optimizing services & processes. I help purpose-driven organizations create meaningful brands.

Detail-oriented

Borja has the rare ability to get the work done while adhering a great attention to details, which I’ve found to be rare among some designers. He is truly efficient with different softwares and very creative. It was a pleasure to work with him at FullSIX, and I wouldn’t hesitate to do so again. Highly recommended!
