What excites me most about design?  
When I first started out in graphic design, it was the opportunity to make things beautiful. Seeing how these small, thoughtful changes made a large impact on the overall look and function of what you were designing. Moving into digital design, I find the psychological aspect incredibly interesting. I've spent my entire adult life being immersed in books on psychology and I love that this interest is incorporated with digital design. Getting to know and empathize with your user and their needs is such an interesting part of the process and provides a constant chance to improve on your designs.

What I've been up to the past few years?
After graduating, I spent years working as a freelance graphic designer. During this time, I worked part-time in office management which somehow ended up becoming a full-time thing for me. Thankfully, I found my way back into the design world, being inspired by some great designers to pursue digital this time around.  

Other Interests: 
Fashion, photography, ballet, travel, reading... 📷👯‍♀️🌴📚
