My name is Jaime Canales and I'm a Spanish UX and Product Designer who enjoys helping people to get nice and functional results for digital products with UX stuff.

I've been involved with user experience since 2002, working closely with all kinds of teams, either as a freelancer or with permanent ongoing contracts at in-house and agency studios. I’ve worked on multiple projects like e-commerce sites, corporate sites, specific tools, intranets, dashboards, specification and interaction guides, apps, etc.

I'm always willing to listen to every story behind a human being. Please, if you want to talk, a coaching session or just to have a cup of coffee (or tea), you can just contact me via my LinkedIn profile, take a look at my Toptal profile, or write me at my email.

You can also take a look at some of my works.

  • Prototyping, wireframing low and high fidelity and visual with different tools: Figma, Sketch, Axure, Adobe XD, UXPin or Photoshop, either plain or interactive.

  • Using tools like Zeplin, Invision, Marvel, Proto.io, Principle, Abstract, Miro.

  • Creating concept development, flows, content trees, content catalogs, user stories, copy, service design, information architecture.

  • Researching, featuring heuristic evaluations, benchmark, personas, card sorting, user tests, interviews, inception workshops, tests A/B, etc.

  • Writing guides for usability and interaction patterns.

  • Using project management tools like Jira or Trello.

  • Using CRO tools like Google Analytics, Google Optimize and Amplitude.

  • Creating and managing Design Systems.

  • Using and fostering Strategic Design and Data-Driven Design.

  • Working with Agile techniques like Scrum.

  • As a Project Manager and Design Lead, managing teams of UX, UI, and development.

  • Mentoring and coaching junior designers.

I'm a product lover, so, I strongly believe in a process to get and deliver nice, useful and accurate products:
