Digital native born in the analog age
Let me introduce myself: my name is Maria, that is Riama the other way around. I have almost 20 years experience in the digital world. I have seen every step of the digital technology since the beginning of internet as we know it. Although I was born as a “techie” person, I value beauty even in the tiniest thing. As a designer, the most important thing is when both, technology and aesthetics, interact together for the benefit of the final user. My natural strength is creating new ideas, concepts, solutions… for solving any issue.
My skills have developed in a lot of different disciplines:
AT THE BEGINNING
I am mentioning that I am a digital native born in the analog age because since I was little I have been fascinated by all the new technology around me. My first computer was a spectrum 48K since then I tried to have the most state-of-the-art ones.
