What they say about us

Recommendations straight from LinkedIn

I'm reminded of a compliment I once gave Mariano - he is the "the Maybach of Product Design".

Mariano is an exceptional product designer who has played a pivotal role in shaping WelcomeOS. His work has helped us to deliver innovative user experiences and deliver AI-powered insights to the restaurant industry, and help to reimagine POS.

Mariano's ability to adapt and change with the ever-evolving needs of the project was crucial in achieving success. As a design leader, Mariano played an integral role in guiding both discovery and research processes, as well as mentoring talent on our team [...]

His ability to prioritise and delegate responsibilities made him an invaluable asset to our team. Mariano's contributions will continue to be a driving force as we grow and evolve, and I wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone looking for top-notch product design.

Welcome POS

Mariano is a high performing creative strategist.

He is able to connect and build strong trusted relationships with multiple stakeholders and teams to help them understand complex problems, facilitate workshops, and put together actionable plans for implementation.

He is an absolute pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him and the quality of his work.

I had the pleasure of working with Mariano on a high-priority project at Belk.

Mariano is one of those people that can be trusted with any business problem - collecting and presenting insights for growth as he progressed through the project.

Mariano can be counted on to manage a project end-to-end, communicate clearly at every milestone, and bring value to the business bottom line. He has proven himself to be insightful, driven, articulate, and resourceful.

He shows up early, prepared, and always over-delivers. Mariano is a fantastic product strategist and person and I would be honored to work with him again in the future.

He is one of the few UX providers in Latam that had real experience working with fintechs and financial institutions. He is well organized and supported very well the startups during the project."

Mariano helped us to identify a lot of low hanging fruit. I highly recommend working with him."

"I took Mariano’s 11-week part-time UX Strategy & Design Bootcamp. His enthusiasm, and deep knowledge of the material was nothing short of impressive. His lectures were very clear and the materials provided were very useful too.

As a designer, my understanding of UX design is still informed by the way Mariano explained and structured the material. Simply put, he is an effective teacher"

Roberto Ibarra

I worked with Mariano on a recent project. He went over and above the brief from the research element right through to the final wireframe delivery.

He conducted research interviews as well is give the project guidance and direction. I would thoroughly recommend him for any UX/UI design project and would be a superb addition to work along any development team!


Katharine Fagerlind


"I very much enjoyed working with Mariano in a Ux capacity. I

am not familiar with Ux processes and research methods, and Mariano was great at proposing ideas on how to capture user feedback, why we were doing specific methods, etc.

He was very thorough in his findings and passionate about Ux.

I would definitely recommend Mariano for Ux and design work."

Meet the Founder

Mariano Alejandro Goren

One of my lifetime goals has been to help humanity become a Type-1 Civilization: one of abundance and expansion.

With this in mind, I became obsessed with the study of psychology, businesses, and design–also cultivating myself in the gentle and the martial arts, trying to make sense of how the world actually works.

The Studio is the vessel in which I consolidate all of these learnings to create and develop tools for the New Civilization.
