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. I'm a 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.
