About
Francisco J. Hernandez
Experience Lead + Product Designer

Get in touch: hola@fjh.nyc

Through my wondrous years of experience, I have grown from a classically trained designer into a new era designing for digital experiences. I am a Texas raised New York transplant. Adept in Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. My knowledge expands the range of designer into entrepreneurship.

I’ve been on a journey working for multiple startups and freelance, developing my own product, and participated in an incubator. I have been able to exercise the range of my capabilities, expanded upon them and attained new ones while taking products from concept to delivery. I have had the opportunity to build responsive websites, web and native mobile applications, and software.
