About

Hello, I'm Cibonay (Si-bou-ney)

Insatiably Curious | Problem Solver | Creative Thinker

I am a designer with over seven years of experience from Miami living in Virginia Beach, VA. I hold a B.S. in Creative Advertising with a Minor in Marketing, and an M.F.A. in Interactive Media with a specialization in UX/UI Design and Data Visualization from the University of Miami.

My work encompasses visual branding, print design, illustration, web design, data visualization, videography, and photography. In addition to print and digital visual design, I specialize in UX and UI design, where form meets function and design creates experiences.

Whether a project requires Agile or Lean UX methodologies using a human-centered design approach allows me to empathize with the users, brainstorm creative and innovative solutions, as well as iterate. In the end, my goal is the bring life to new brands and refresh existing ones.

On the weekends I enjoy traveling, trying new cuisines, making 360 videos, film photography, arts and crafts, painting, and cuddling with my pup.
