Who is she? 🌱

Hi, I’m Julia Gab :) I’m a nanny turned UI/UX Designer based in Los Angeles. My diverse background has brought me many experiences and taught me a lot of lessons. I can speak 5 languages, and growing up I had the privilege of traveling new places and learning about different cultures and people.

If I had to sum up the essence of who I am in two words it would be: art and the environment. I have loved art ever since I can remember. I’d always paint, draw, sculpt, craft, write, or dance in my free time. I loved all art but especially music and singing. Growing up I wanted to be a singer but, you guessed it, long story short that didn’t work out…

As for the environment part, that’s always been ingrained in me as well. ‘The ecologist’ they used to call me when I was a little girl, for going around the house turning off all the lights or shutting down the faucet when people were brushing their teeth. As a kid that was my way of helping the world and being sustainable. As I grew older I learned of other ways of caring for the planet, like going Vegan.

But what do these two things have in common with Design? How do they relate at all? Well, because of my art background I’m creative, innovative, patient, and open minded, and I understand and enjoy visual design. With singing, I realized I didn’t want to be in the spotlight as much as I wanted to have a platform and make a voice for myself where I could speak up and help others with my art. I wanted to advocate for people. I also hoped to inspire, motivate and encourage others to do the same. I always understood the importance of caring for the environment. I’m empathetic towards all living beings and try to understand people’s needs, motivations and incentives. I’m a good listener, collaborative, and passionate.

I got into UX Design because I want to utilize my artistic skills and compassionate mindset to create products that will make people’s day-to-day lives better, more enjoyable, more comfortable, and safer.
