Cláudia Marques

Lead Designer


Hi! I’m Cláudia and I’m thrilled to join Encore as the new UX/UI Lead Designer.

I’ve been a designer for over 6 years now and I’ve done a bit of everything: from UX Research to UI Design and even Service Design and Development. I’ve been an entrepreneur, I’ve worked as a freelancer and I’ve worked full time for start-ups & big corporations.

I’m not a professional musician but it’s always been a big part of my life: I’ve studied Lyrical & Jazz singing and I’ve joined a couple of choirs & bands along the way.

Some of my dearest memories revolve around music. Back in my home town, in Porto, I used to meet up with friends every week to play. We’d start at midnight and only go home when the sun rose. Live music just has this power to it I can’t explain – it’s travelling without leaving the same place.

I became a designer so I could create things that have a ​measurable impact on the quality of people’s lives, so I’m really excited by this opportunity to help transform and enhance the musical experience digitally.

Currently listening to: Snarky Puppy – Shofukan
