Rica-Marie Garcia

Currently working and living in New York City. Studied User Interface Design from the University of California, San Diego; where I gained a strong understanding of user interface design and usability principles of the user's experience. With this educational background, I have mastered interaction principles, requirements analysis, design standards, techniques, visual design, and psychological principles that go into designing for the user in different screens (web and mobile devices). Graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts, in Graphic Design, from The Art Institute of Washington. My education provided me with a high proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite programs including Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Muse, Flash, and Dreamweaver. I can easily work on both Mac and PC operating systems. With my creative background in graphic design and fine arts, I present a strong strategic and aesthetic approach to design, layout, typography, print, web and mobile. My career goal is to continually improve and transform myself into an ideal user interface designer to benefit my employer and myself.

As you view my portfolio you will notice that I have an extremely creative thought process when designing projects. Drawing has always become second nature, which allows me to effortlessly sketch out and brainstorm ideas. I am always trying to expand my knowledge of design social media by staying up to date with the latest trends, and mixing up and reinventing new unique styles. I sketch out all ideas in my head, helping me discover every possibility. I can create multiple design mock-ups with different styles and layouts, which help me to decide which design path. From there I can branch off from a few ideas and narrow it down, then create a digital wire-frames, and prototypes. The outcome I present will consistently be the best I can possibly offer. I always want to improve and learn the art of User Interface Design, while enhancing my design career. I never want to stop growing (mainly self-taught) and I set goals on the weekends and free time to improve myself.
