Rodrigo Vera

Co-chair, Interaction Awards, Initiative Lead

Rodrigo is a Chilean UX designer. He graduated in Graphic Design from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso and received an Advanced Design Master’s degree (MADA) from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

Head of UX at IDA (Chilean UX consulting), he splits his professional life with academia, as professor in the Information Architecture & User Experience Diploma at Universidad Central and teaching the Interaction design and User Experience course in the Advanced design master’s degree PUC (MADA).

With more of 10 years experience in Chile supporting the promotion of the interaction design, Rodrigo has served as a Local Leader for IxDA Santiago since 2014, and co-chaired Interaction South America 2016.

He is interested in interaction design beyond the digital platform — how it can provide better experiences in public spaces and make real changes in the lives of people.

Fabricio is Associate Partner & VP of Design at McKinsey & Company where he helps companies become more human-centered and prepared to compete in the digital economy. He brings design leadership to the creation of digital products and services, that ultimately drive organizational change.
