Hey there! I'm Mari.

San Francisco based designer focused on crafting digital experiences​

Selected projects include creating a new design ecosystem for a renowned, cutting-edge Stanford School of Sciences, assisting Bay Area commuters planning their way around the Bay by creating BART Official Trip Planner App, designing the experience of an app for millennials looking for roommates in New York City, with Roommate Finder, and creating connections on subjects that really matter, for real people in San Francisco Affordable Housing Project.


Senior Product Designer with 15+ years of experience, working with Research, Strategy, Branding, User Experience & Visual Interfaces.

My first contact with design in the early 90s, and improved my skills by getting a Bachelor’s degree in Interactive & Digital Media, which taught me a lot of aesthetics, art history, psychology, interaction design, to better understand businesses, its requirements and how to translate its core values to digital products.

Graduated in Digital Design, and specialization in Interactive Medias in 2008 in São Paulo, Brazil, transplanted to the Bay Area in 2013.

I still have the curiosity of a kid, finding inspiration everywhere, to solve problems through compelling ideas, positively impacting users, using innovation to create interactive experiences that can lead positively to shape our future.
