I am Danielle Lázaro, a professional based in Curitiba/Brazil. I am passionate about how visual design, associated with good interaction patterns, can improve the overall quality of experiences for users. My favorite topics include user interface, UX motion and gamification, as they can add value and engagement to digital solutions.

After sharpening my design skills and mindset for over a decade and currently being a User Experience Designer, I have acquired the skillset to handle end-to-end processes. Besides pursuing a technical career, I also enjoy sharing knowledge and promoting design through both formal and informal education opportunities. Through previous work experiences in the UX field, I have globally supported projects and also mentored students from Brazil, United States and Canada.
