ABOUT ME

Juan Tejerina

Juan Tejerina

UX/UI Designer

I was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1986. Since I was a little child, I’ve been quite interested in exploring and getting to know any possible ways to express myself. Nowadays, I’m still trying to figure out what am I looking for. Still wondering.
I’m passionate about creating. Day by day, my mind overflows with all sort of ideas. So I just try to give them shape and turn them into something real. Something that can be more than just a spark of thoughts.

I was that child that would not listen to the teacher and fill every single page of my books with sketches instead. I was that guy next to you looking through the window staring at something that you could not see. Yeah, I was exactly that guy. Lost in another world that was probably more interesting. Or just different.

Don’t get me wrong. I managed to succeed on my studies and even rank 1stof my promotion. But that’s another story.

Talking about expressing myself, drawing and designing was not (and is not) the only way I found. Writing is also important in my daily life. I don’t even remember when I wrote my first short story. But since then, I’ve written a lot of stuff and even a book. A book that makes me proud of myself.

But amongst all these ways, I found designing the most rewarding one. The way I’m better at. I love to design. I love to create websites, apps and any other kind of visual things that can be used and understood by many people. No matter what language they speak.

When I was only 24, I was hired as Head of Web Design at Vocento, where I managed a group of 10 designers whom I’m absolutely proud of. Together, we created awesome websites and apps well known across this country.

Three years later, Panda Security knocked on my door to tell me about a huge and exciting project I could just not decline. So I jumped onto a whole new boat in a thrilling adventure that is just starting.

But I think that the most important thing is not what my current job or title is or were. The most important thing is that, along my way, I’ve meet some good professionals that have looked after me, taught me everything they knew and took care of me. If I am here right now, is thanks to all who have helped me through. Without them, I could not have done this.

So even if I don’t say their names, they know who they are. And If by any means they ever get across these words. I just want to thank them.

INNOVATION IS THE KEY

Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power to that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.

Working
Together

In order to achieve great success, it is important to do things well right from the start. I’m the kind of person that likes to work hand by hand so I can get a better idea of what you’re looking for, what kind of person you are and what kind of solutions fit your style better. Every person is different, and I’m here to watch, understand, and then resolve.

More
Than design

Creativity is inherent to your mind. You can express yourself in different ways. First of all I’m a creative individual, and then I’m specialized in design. But, nevertheless, I’m constantly looking for new ways to materialize all the crazy ideas that boil in my mind. My last adventure is a novel called “Los Ojos del Cuervo”. Just in spanish, for the moment.
