About Me

xavier_barriga_abril_runa

Hey, I am the Runa but my name is Xavier. I am a passionate designer born in Quito. My professional experience is related to the different stages of design such as research, conceptualization, development and evaluation of visual products, as well as, communication strategies. Since my last studies, I began to explore the design of experiences through technological objects and interactive art.

For the time being, I am working in the classroom of an abandoned school. Alongside a team full of architects, artists, and designers; we are using this space for developing a coworking of creative industries. This space is placed in a beautiful area in Quito's downtown. We try to combine our passion and jobs with an active participation in the community of the neighborhood.
