About Me

Hi. I'm Jennifer. I like to make things that look good. I also like to make things that work. Dieter Rams said that "good design makes a product useful". After working in footwear and graphic design for many years I realized I wanted to have more of serviceable impact with my creativity. I began pursuing an education in Interaction Design to supplement my visual and technical skills and fell in love with the process. Solving usability with design is universal. In this time of rapid-fire technology, we only have moments to engage before users swipe to the next option. My goal is to implement thoughtful visual design to enhance functionality and create seamless and meaningful experiences.
