Hi, I'm Mira
UX/UI Designer
Experienced user interface designer, an adherent of logical reasoning and system approach. I like making intuitive digital products that are easy to use and save people's time (because life is too short to spend time figuring out how to use interfaces).
I am a Russian native who is fluent in English and Spanish. I reside in Spain and have work permit.
