Ana Santos - Web Developer

User-orientated web designer with a passion for books.

Overview

I'm a user-orientated designer with a passion for books. Since the completion of my degree in Design (BA) I've worked in several agency and client side roles as graphic and UI / UX Designer. While doing so, I've kept doing something else I'm also passionate about: writing and reading. Your author website is an unique opportunity you have to connect to your readers and audience.
