Welcome to Manuel J Barrio’s portfolio
UI/UX & Digital Design

I am an advocate of user-centered design with a very broad skill set covering:

Design Systems

I devise effective design systems created to meet targets, increase conversion and evolve iteratively to reflect ongoing UX research while addressing stakeholder requirements.


I champion prototyping throughout the design process for testing, validation and handover to developers. From paper to high-fidelity, I am software agnostic and always willing to learn new tools.


Technical, stylised, vector or traditional media. I create illustrative assets for all aspects of UI Design and Marketing Communications.


I design custom icon sets as SVG, icon fonts or image sets, catering for a very wide range of styles, always tailored to the brand.

Animation & Motion Graphics

From idents to character animation, I cut my teeth with good old Flash but use mainly After Effects nowadays. During the night I transform into Mowgli and provide live visuals for shows, clubs and events but that’s a whole other world that you can see here.


I am equally comfortable creating full branding exercises and refreshing existing ones.


I am equally comfortable working in-house or for agencies. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of working for clients across industries for a wide range of projects.
