Raquel García Arévalo (Taisa)
My name is Raquel García Arévalo, and Taisa is my nickname since 20 years ago.
Extensive experience in Software Development
I am Business Analyst, Web and Graphic Designer, specialized in User Experience (UX).
I have more than 10 years of experience in software development, working with a leading Spanish company in the care services software sector.
I work now as a Freelance. Since 2015, when I moved to live in Germany.
At first I made some projects for friends and family. Then I started my own projects: This website and my Blog about Maternity and Live in Germany.
Now, I started to make Freelance Design projects professionally.
What is your passion?
With what do you spend hours and time flies?
For me, it is Design.
How did I get to work as Designer?
I always knew what I wanted to make in life
I was always interested in computers since I was small. I started to use computers and play with Paint when I was about 5. I had my first own computer when I was 11. I tried once to dismount it and put it back together. It was clear to me, I was born to work with computers.
I loved Disney, and Pixar’s 3D animation. In that moment, I saw a documentary about the company and how they worked, and I fell in love with it. I wanted to become an 3D designer or animator. Looking for a way to it, I studied computer science.
Getting to know Design
About 10 years ago, I started to work in a growing small software company in the support department. In a few months, an oportunity came, and I started to work as Business Analyst. And in a small company you end up taking care of lots of tasks.
There I found my love for design. I took interest in User Interface and I liked it. It became soon part of my tasks, and then started to learn about Usability, User Experience and Interaction design and apply it in my work. I also made some icon design and worked together with other designers in a complete style makeover of the software interface. No one else had thought about usability or design before so it was a huge improvement for the software.
Nowadays I still work with this company as a external collaborator, as well — (Además de) working in Freelance projects by myself.
Why is worth working with me?
- I love design. I enjoy every project I work in, and its success. As it was my own project.
- My work as a Business Analyst and blogger helped me to develop great writing skills and improve them everyday.
- Joining this with the SEO knowledge that I adquired recently, I can help you to improve your website content and optimize it to get found easier in Google and other search engines.
- In my day to day I face to solve problems. It’s something that I’m good at and I love using my creativity for it. Give me a problem, and I will offer you solutions.
- I have programming and technical knowledge too, so I do not just take care of the “external” part. I can take care of the everything.
- I manage two websites and blogs of my own with a good growth rate. So I know what it is to start your own business.
- I keep learning everyday, to apply the knowledge in both my projects and yours if you want to work with me.
(Translated) I’m happy with the results of the work, because Taisa helps you shape your vision in a web design and also helps you make important improvements to the content. She explains you important things that make your website look much better. She manage not only the design, but also marketing issues such as SEO, contents, ideal customer…
Some people says that you can create a website yourself, and it is true. But the quality of Taisa’s work is that of a professional. And that reflects in the design, in the contents, in the patience and affection that Taisa has, so that things go as you wish but with a super-professional touch. On top of that, she pushed me to keep going and not get lost in the way. For me, she was the angel of my web.
I am very happy with the design but above all for such a clear, precise and patient advice for someone like me who does not handle many technical terms and knowledge in this area. An investment that has been worth it!
A heartfelt thanks for such a beautiful job.
