UX Design

By staying up to date with today’s techniques, new design approaches and trends, I always look for opportunities to create dynamic and beautiful work for clients or within a team. From an early age, I realized that visual design was my passion and calling. Because of this I put my heart and empathy for the user into each new project.

UX Research

"The things we know the best are the things we haven't been taught"- Luc de Clapiers. Everyone knows good design when they see it, but coming up with great ideas can only be done with with User Research. By taking the time to understand their needs and how they interact with the design we save time money and cement the longevity ofour digital products.

Wait.. what? Yes, I have a background in Floristry and Set Design (✿◠‿◠). Years of botanical design work I has given me the. opportunity to meet many many incredible creatives.

Illustration

Blame 2020! I took up illustration during the. pandemic, eventually taking courses in Charcoal drawing and watercolor. I love these mediums and have used this knowledge to develop a practice of digital illustration using procreate on ipad. This is definitely still in the "hobby" phase, however, I enjoy incorporating hand drawn iconography and illustrations into my UX work.
