I'm Isaac Vigil
I do Product
Design & Strategy

From Startups to Companies with millions in revenue I have worked with different teams all over the world.

Thanks to the experience collaborating with really diverse projects, I know what has to be done and most importantly what shouldn't be done to make a product a success.

Being multidisciplinary helps me know what is required in the different parts of building products.

Besides a Designer, amongst other things, I am also a Founder, an Entrepreneur, and a Leader. I have founded my own Design Studio, which provided solutions to multiple clients. As an Entrepreneur, I have started different projects and I am always looking to new ventures to work on. Being a Leader I ensured that the teams under my charge stayed on track, achieved their objectives while developing their skills.
