Álvaro Ramis Font

Hi there, welcome to my world wide webpage.
It’s small but cozy, hope you like it. Have a look around.

A bit about me: I come from a coastal town on the Mediterranean side of Spain. Both my grandparents were fishermen. I have soft hands.

 

 

Madrid is the place I call home. Sometimes I daydream of moving to the countryside, though. Might be an age thing.

Comic books, music, summers working with my dad and being out and about with my childhood friends shaped me as a kid.

 

I’ve always enjoyed drawing and ended up studying industrial design because of that. Quite happy with the outcome.

I work on design, focusing on user experience and interaction design. My aim is to bring empathy, clarity and functionality in what I do while being kind with the people I work with.

I’m currently working at Amazon creating new customer experiences for online retail. Developing solutions at such scale is quite a challenge, though very rewarding.

Previous work adventures include being part of design teams for startup and corporates, leading a department for a design school and freelancing the heck out of many projects. You can check that on my Linkedin profile.

If you want to know more about my work, please do get in touch and we’ll sort it out. You can meet me at hola@alvaroramis.com

I have a soft spot for design education. I’ve been teaching for more than 10 years now and going strong. It’s a fantastic experience, every time.

Currently I lecture at La Nave Nodriza, an amazing design education space in Madrid. Very happy to be in their team as a teacher and student. Check them out!

Visual arts bring joy to my eyeballs and tickles my brain. From old ephemera to the newest kids around, I get emotional.

I’ve done my fair share of work on branding, illustration, graphic design… Solving visual challenges is bliss for me.

I don’t want to miss the chance of giving a shout out to friends, colleagues and others that I really admire. You’re the best!

What else? Mmmm… well, there is a blog in the works. I want to write about my favorite things and other stuff.

I’m always collecting links on Pinboard. It is messy. Lately I’ve also started collecting visual imagery on are.na. It’s a fantastic place. I miss the old and weird internet.

Oh wow, running out of pixels already.

I hope this brings some color about who I am. Thank you for passing by. Means a lot. 🙂

Cheers!

This is the colophon.
