About Me

about me

My Name Is Vanessa Colina

I'm an User Experience designer based in Washington, DC. My focus is in user research for mobile applications that use emerging technologies.


I'm a Venezuelan designer based in Washington, DC. I have studies in Graphic Design, User Experience Design and Product Management. I've been working in the field for the past 13 years, going from Agency work to a career dedicated to digital products including web and mobile applications.

I've designed and launched my own mobile products as well as having the opportunity to help understand and enhance the user experience of digital products for the international development sector. These products range from web/mobile applications to developing an entire design system for an organization of 2,000+ employees.

In the past year I joined Design challenges such as the 100 Day Project with the theme “100 Days of Women in Tech” to feature on-going women’s accomplishments in the field.

I enjoy speaking about UX related topics and in 2017 I was invited by Adobe to speak about the value of validating user research through prototyping.

I currently have a focus on mobile applications using emerging technologies like AR/VR, Blockchain and AI.
