Hey! ¡Hola! ¿Qué onda?
My name is Andrés Eduardo Hurtado. I was born and raised in the México-U.S. borderland of Juárez/El Paso. Growing up with two merging cultures along my side allowed me to develop a unique perspective on the various needs people with diverse racial, cultural and socio-economical backgrounds have.
My inner drive to help people pushed me to pursue design at California College of the Arts in the Bay Area. I am now a new graduate with a BFA in Interaction Design. I’m currently seeking full-time opportunities in a collaborative environment.
Human-centered design is my passion. I have always considered myself a curious and empathetic individual whose goal is to bring accessibility to every human on a case-by-case basis.
As an Interaction Designer, I believe impact can be done on both a small and large scale. Rather than detaching the human element away from the individual to treat them as another "user", one must keep in mind that impact must be generated through maintaining an empathetic and human approach to the design solution.
