My name is Paul Mariani and I am a product designer located in San Francisco, California. I attended San Diego State University, where I earned a degree in Graphic Design, as well as, Cal State University, Fullerton for a UX and Customer-Centered Design certificate. Since graduating, I have worked on teams for both large corporations and small startups.
I’m a self-motivated, fast problem solving creative that enjoys collaborating in a team. As a multi-talented and moldable designer, I love to challenge myself by taking on tough new tasks. This curiosity to always learn has allowed me to develop and become strong in many design applications.
Taking a simple whiteboard sketch and creating a beautiful interface is one of my strong points. Since I have the technical background from graphic design, I am able to find the right solutions to design elegant and aesthetically appropriate interfaces to any application.
Great design must have perfect pixels, but more importantly the application must be functional. Taking a user-centered approach, I find that solving complex problems is not only rewarding but something I am passionate about.
Trust is built with consistency. Implementing and maintaining a consistent brand is a huge factor in the success of a company. I am lucky enough to have been apart of multiple company brand redesigns from beginning to end.
There's a lot more to designing a great application than colors and typography. No matter what stage the product is at, I have the knowledge and experience to jump in to provide empathetic solutions to a user's problems.
