My name is Sonia Bensouda.
I'm an experienced interior architect who is now converting to UX-UI design. After studying interior architecture in Lyon, I moved to London in 2014 to attain a Master's degree in Interior and Spatial Design at UAL (Chelsea College of Arts).
For the past six years, I've worked as an interior architect, primarily on high-end residential properties. During this time, I've developed skills in design, project management, and client communication, all of which I’m excited to apply in my career as a UX-UI designer.
I recently completed the Google UX Design Certificate, which has given me a solid foundation in the principles and practices of user-centered design. From my background in interior architecture, I already understand the importance of creating spaces and experiences that are both compelling and functional.
I’m excited to continue learning and applying my design skills to digital products and services, and to create experiences that both meet users needs and drive business value.
On the side
I am also an artist specialising in digital collage and photography. My background as a designer has shaped my passion for abstract geometry and composition. My process usually combines pastel tone palette and clean-cut geometric patterns to construct surrealist compositions. I’ve been creating, exhibiting, and selling my artwork for the past five years.
The juxtaposition in my work often explores the idea of being in two states — being here physically and somewhere else mentally. My preferred medium is photography layered with digital collages on limited impressions on giclee paper.
