Becoming a Professional

Product Designer

I always wanted to become a product designer. To learn how users best navigate through a design from start to finish. At first I didn’t feel that I had the equipment to become one, especially knowing that most designers use a Macbook or Mac to design. They do provide the best design and optimal resolution for pixels, color and resolution. I then purchased a MacBook Pro and an Ipad Pro, mainly for the purpose of opening more than two high performance applications at the same time. I then felt that I needed guidance so I decided to enroll in the Springboard bootcamp to help me succeed. 

Let me be your guide to my journey to becoming a product designer. Follow my advice and guidance to learn how I became one. 

Health & Nutrition

Business Specific Designs from Scratch

I always wanted to get lean and ripped but I never had a proper diet to do so. I was always either eating too much protein or carbohydrates. Now that I followed a Paleo diet I have lost most of my fat and continue to lose more. I will want to document my process in becoming ripped and lean so you can too. From trial and error to success. Let me be your guide to getting ripped. 

Skilled & Professional Drawer Using

Procreate

I was always fascinated with beautiful well drawn paintings, illustrations and animations. I never thought that I would get my hands on a pressure sensitive device that just feels like a pencil. This happened when I went to the apple store to try out the tablets while window shopping. I ended up being fascinated with the pressure sensitivity of an Apple Ipad Pro. Now that I have my hands on this device I want to become a professional drawer in the application Procreate. Let me be your guide to becoming one.

Music Creation

Singing from the Beginning

I always wanted to create music of my own. I am also curious to hear how I sound when recording myself. I know it will be awful at first but with practice and patience I will sound better. Well hopefully, right? Watch me in my journey as I learn to become a professional singer. 

Inventing Problem Focused Products

Product Invention

The reason I want to become a product designer after all is to make my own successful products for people. I want to have solutions for users that are problem focused so I can improve users life’s. I will document my invention process so you can learn to make your own product too. Let me be your guide to product invention. 

I worked with Oscar on redesigning Foregen’s site and I was impressed with his comprehensive approach to the project. From the beginning, Oscar ensured that he understood what our organization represented and what would be important to incorporate in his design. These elements are interwoven in the site with its clean, modern look and clear communication of different facets of our organization. Our community of supporters and donors, along with other interested parties, our advisors, and potential investors have remarked on the excellent first impression the site left with them.

Oscar would be a valuable addition to any team and I can’t recommend him enough based on the traits and qualities that he has demonstrated while working with him. His continued creativity in his designs and additions to the site consistently impress me; his ability to collaborate with others and inspire them; his capacity to take the initiative and lead; and of course his friendliness and sense of humor that make me look forward to talking and working with him.

Having worked with a number of independent contractors, Oscar's commitment to client satisfaction is outstanding. Oscar took the time to thoroughly understand our non-profit's mission and goals and went into depth understanding our donor base, helping to shape a direction for brand identity. He provided valuable insights into analytics, brand management, and especially UX and UI development. After the implementation of Oscar's web design, our non-profit saw an increase in supporter engagement, donor contributions, and outside interest in our organization.

Oscar has also worked with me in a volunteer capacity where he has shown solid teamwork skills, leadership ability, and consistency in meeting objectives. He was submitted for promotion to Director of Digital Development and IT, where his goal-oriented nature continues to drive the department forward. I especially appreciate Oscar's willingness to both teach and learn from others, including his subordinates, to further grow as an individual and provide the team with a sharper skill set. I highly recommend Oscar and look forward to working with him for the indefinite future.
