Hello! I’m Lauren.

I am a UX designer with a background in Fine Arts and Visual Design. I'm interested in the ways design thinking can be applied to global issues. I am currently looking for a local or remote UX position.

What I'm Currently Up To

Assistant Teacher

Helping to teach the Power Coders Spring 2020 Web Design track, which focuses on UX.

DesignLab Graduate

Recent graduate of DesignLab UX Academy, an intensive online program with over 480 hours of coursework and mentorship.

Remote Freelancing

I'm currently working as a freelance designer from my home studio. I'm interested in full time permanent opportunities in Zürich or remote.

The longer version.

In addition to UX and UI skills, I have over 10 years of experience as a graphic designer creating brand identities, icons, marketing collateral, editorial design, product packaging, infographics, social media campaigns, illustrations, and presentations. My visual design and fine craft skills are strong, having formally trained at the university level in Fine Arts as well as Graphic Design. I am self directed and work well on my own, but love to cooperate as a team and learn as much as I can from others. I’m a hard worker, taking pride in the quality of my work and timely delivery.

I worked as an in house designer for 3.5 years in the San Francisco, CA area before moving to Zürich, Switzerland in 2016. Since then I’ve worked as a freelance designer on a variety of projects. At the end of 2019 I became interested in UX design and completed DesignLab’s UX Academy, an intensive online UX course with 480 hours of coursework and one on one mentorship.

I was born and raised on the island of American Samoa, and have lived in many countries around the world, including the US, Finland, and Thailand. I love to travel, learn languages, make things with my hands, and be in the nature as much as possible.

I'm currently looking for a full time position as a UX designer, either remote or in Zürich. If you'd like to speak to me about working together, please get in touch.
