hi, nice to meet you!
Self-driven, ambitious, compassionate — a designer curious about the ways people interact with the world and how I can help them along that journey.
👋 Hi! I'm Grace (she/they). I'm a UI/UX designer passionate about inclusive design, using innovation to progress forward, and making users' experiences feel like second nature. I start designs with a set of constraints and guidelines, but often approach these with a healthy bit of wiggle room that allows for unique discoveries and ideas to bloom in the process.
Currently, I am studying Cognitive Science with a Specialization in Design & Interaction at UC San Diego.

In my spare time, you can catch me immersed in fiction, whether it be reading, writing (I'm working on a novel!), watching films/shows, or analyzing characters. I also enjoy editing videos, practicing calligraphy & brush lettering, dancing, and playing the violin.
