About me.

My name is Mariza Samartzi and I am a User Experience Designer.

I focus on designing meaningful experiences for people who interact with digital interfaces. My goal is to get into the depth of the product to make sure I understand the user needs.

I have experience in a variety of IT projects’ design, from small to complex, such as HR application, wealth management software and booking reservation system. I have worked with fast-paced scrum methodology and I am able to perform within an agile environment, while maintaining creativity and high-level of usability in my designs.

To learn more about my job please have a look at my services below and see how I work. 

Outside of work I am a mother of two lovely boys and spend most of my energy pampering them! I love exploring nature, cooking healthy food and travelling when possible. I recently started hiking and soon became my favourite activity as it is my way to clear my mind and get inspired.

The three words I would use to describe myself are optimistic, resilient and detailed-oriented. These are the traits that I have not acquired overnight but throughout my personal and professional journey.
