Hi, I'm Cynthia

I’m a UX designer pivoting from 10 years experience in the fashion industry. 

 

My time spent in these fast paced office environments have many parallels to the UX process. I am familiar with the iterative design cycle. Having worked closely with design teams and overseas manufacturers, I am able to communicate and break down complex processes and make it understandable. Through fittings with a live model, I get the user feedback needed to improve on the product, and stick closely to the constraints set by the production team to deliver a product on time. 

 

Within the UX realm, I find deep diving into research and getting absorbed into a new world fascinating.

What sparks excitement for me is the moment my expectations are challenged. This moment forces me to make room to adjust my thinking and see things from another perspective. 

 

Pre-pandemic, I would be found dancing Kizomba and Urban Kiz.
