Guides

From a Human-Centered and Design-Driven perspective, I’ve created some guides and materials on topics such as Product Design Workflow, Product Development, and UX Research. Now you can check out most of them for free here.

Posts

I usually do a daily post on LinkedIn and eventually on Medium, with topics related to User Experience (UX), Design Systems, Innovation, Design Thinking, and many more, However, I’ll start to post here from now.

Talks

I am a Design Thinking enthusiast and I like to share my knowledge with others through talks I’ve made over the last two years. Here you can find some of the materials for free, and use them to spread the word of Design Thinking to others.

Hiring Juan Fernando Pacheco as Design Manager

As a Design Manager, I can manage a design or graphics team based in customer and business goals, collaborate on projects with colleagues and partners, delegate tasks, and check projects for quality and consistency.

In addition, as a Design Manager, I usually collaborate with marketing, sales, and product engineer teams to check designs, and ensure messages land appropriately with customers and end-users.

On the other hand, I develop and implement successful design strategies by outlining how the design team will create the project’s deliverables.

And, what else I can do?

I often manage and work with several designers and evaluate individual design deliverables alongside team performance, delivering critical feedback when necessary.

On the other hand, I am the kind of Design Manager who encourages team members throughout a project, working along and collaborating with other teams, often marketing and development teams, to ensure the product’s looks and presentation are enough good to accomplish end-users needs and business goals.

As part of my responsibilities, I usually introduce design-driven strategies to high management and speak to specific numbers and expected outcomes for the product, yes RoI is part of my business speech.

Once the design works are finalized, I usually recommend tracking and collecting product feedback by filtering through customer service responses, end-user interviews, and checking in with focus groups to get an overall picture of how well the design performs.
