Four Quick Questions with Dariela Escobar

Dariela Escobar

Q1. So then, what are you up to now?

I am living in Skellefteå, a small city in the north of Sweden,  and working as a UX designer at North Kingdom, an experience design agency. I work in a multidisciplinary team, where we support each other throughout the development of digital projects - from the original concept to deployment. My main tasks include doing user research, wireframing, prototyping, user testing and product testing. I have worked both with clients, such as Lego, and with one of own North Kingdom project, where we have developed an app, called Once Upon, which we are due to launch soon.

This city is cold, but the people are warm people. During the cold months it turns into a winter wonderland and we can see the northern lights, while during the summer we enjoy the beautiful  nature with 24 hours of sunlight.

Q2. How did your studies at Malmö University help you?

The collaborations with real clients, as well as being involved in a complete design process with other students from different backgrounds, skills and nationalities were an amazing experience that helped me build a good portfolio. Also, the Interaction Design programme at Malmö University has a very good reputation. This, combined with great networking opportunities, helped me find a great job after my studies.

Q3. Why would you recommend Malmö University?

The city is amazing, there are so many activities going on, interesting places to hang out at and great people. I had really good courses and the teachers were very approachable and willing to help. I also had a lot of great opportunities during my studies, like going to conferences in Bandung, Indonesia and Berlin, Germany. And the general environment of the university is very friendly.

Q4. Staying in touch with any of your old classmates?

Definitely! I am in regular contact with several of them, even if we don’t live in the same city anymore. On top of that, it was actually through the tip of another student that I found my current job! I made really good friends during my time as a student, we continue to meet in different cities and I hope that they will be my friends for life!
