Mayra Nascimento

Product Designer in Brooklyn, NYC, She/Her


Hello! My name is Mayra, and I'm a Brooklyn-based Product Designer and Illustrator. With years of experience in different areas of design, I've worked with visual identity, branding concepts, and editorials, which has helped to hone my skills in the visual design aspects of the job.

Five years ago, I shifted my focus to digital products and services, diving into e-commerce, apps, mobile, and web design, allowing me to blend creativity with functionality, making user experiences my top priority.

My background covers a range of industries, including entertainment, ticket sales, and consumer goods. This exposure to B2B and B2C companies has made me a versatile designer who can adapt to different scenarios.

I thrive on collaboration, so I can bring a strong sense of teamwork to the positions I work with.
