Ariel Acosta smiling in by the waterfront in Queens, NY.

Hey there, I’m Ariel Acosta!

I’m a UX Designer based in NYC. I’ve been bridging the gap between people and technology for years in my past life as an IT Support Specialist. I approach everything through the lenses of curiosity and have a learning driven personality.

I believe that inclusive, collaborative teamwork is the catalyst for great change, from the smallest problems to the biggest ones. My goal is to create frictionless, enjoyable experiences that can be used by all.

I’m currently available for full time and freelance opportunities. You can reach me at

Some Kind Words

"Ariel was an integral member of our Olas team. Ariel is articulate, thoughtful and incredibly focused on providing his best, on behalf of the user and the client. He also is a great communicator, and very easy to talk to with a high level of empathy that made him someone to go to for advice along the way. I highly recommend Ariel, and I would love to have the pleasure of working with him in the future."
