Bettsina's Journey

Passionate learner of everything digital, with 5 years of experience in digital design. I specialize in Web UX/UI design, e-learning design & Motion Graphics.

I completed a Master of Digital Media from The Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver, Canada, and a Bachelor of Visual & Media Arts from CEDIM in Monterrey, Mexico.

I have experience in working with multidisciplinary teams in agile environments and I also have an entrepreneurial heart as I co-founded a startup at the end of my Master's degree.

My main interests include (1) exploring the crossover between technology and art to help people to better communicate, understand and learn, (2) new ways of interactive storytelling through motion and sound, and (3) digital anthropology.

My driving forces:

  • I am curious about the 'different'.

  • I like the 'unknown'.

  • I like to combine different types of information and connect them in different ways.

  • I like to create new languages and interfaces, both physical and digital.

  • I want to make a difference.

  • I believe languages drive the world and interfaces are the 'medium' for each language.

In my spare time, I enjoy gaming, playing the piano and drawing cartoons.
