this is me

hello!

I’m Maria Eugenia, also known as Mary Jane, from a city in southern Brazil called Curitiba, where I graduated in Advertising and later in Business Management and Planning. There I also started my career as a Digital Art Director and worked with several clients in diverse communication and strategy challenges. After 8 years working in ad agencies I decided to take my first step towards the world, moved to Germany and got my Master Degree in Digital Media.

I am now experiencing the other side of the process, working inside companies as a UX/Product Designer and I must say, it has been a joyful ride. I’m looking forward to new experiences and challenges.

Currently based in Germany.

what am I up to?
