I'm Carol

Based in Berlin, I am a Design Manager who is passionate about workshops facilitation, engaging cross-functional teams in problem discovery to create meaningful and validated solutions.


I'm Carol

I am a senior designer with eleven years of experience. Based in Berlin, I have been designing for health as a Senior UX/UI Design Manager at Heartbeat Medical Solutions. With a broad experience, my main goal is to lead product teams, creating meaningful solutions trough design.


Kindly called Carol or Carô, I'm from Porto Alegre, south of Brazil, and since January 2018 I've been living and working as a designer in Berlin, Germany.

I've been a product designer (UX/UI) for a few years now, but in my 12 years of experience I also have worked with branding, communication design and marketing. My broad design background, combined with my passion for design thinking have recently lead me to becoming a strong workshop facilitator and a designer leader, fostering collaboration and advocating for new ways of working.

A fan of remote work, I like to travel, to read, to chill in the park and to have friends over for dinner. I'm a cat person and living in Germany has made me a plant person as well. I'm a native speaker of Portuguese, but I also speak English, Italian, and a little bit of German.
