Noemi Cortizas

Hi, Welcome!!

I am Noemi and I love to think outside the box
to create amazing & sustainable things.

I have taken part in a number of innovative projects in the fields of cosmetic packaging, luxury, consumer goods and transport. Sometimes I was the designer sometimes the development engineer; for the most part I was both. All this blended with leadership roles, in order to make all key departments of a company work together toward a common goal. In addition, through my international experience, I can adapt easily and have a broader vision of projects.

Recently, I worked as an independent designer and engineer for several companies worldwide. Using my technical knowledge and aesthetic skills, I work with their marketing, technical and manufacturing teams to help them understand market trends and develop a CMF strategy.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT MY WORK

EFRAT FRIENDLAND
Founder at "Material Scout" & "Positive Plastics"

Noemí joined us for a creative research and infused it with the perspective of a designer-engineer, bringing her aesthetic vision alongside her technical understanding of the challenge. Was a pleasure!

VINCENT MENNY
Founder at "Authentic Material"

Sparkling.
Noemi reconciled me with "application" design!

GERALD MARTINES
Founder at "In Signes"

I had the pleasure to work with Noemi on a quite challenging innovation project. She demonstrated a rare mix of capabilities and expertise, blending the creativity and ‘good taste’ of a designer with the rationale and technical skills of an engineer in an agile and autonomous way. She is a great asset to any innovation team.
