With a background in psychology, graphic design, and UX studies, I am passionate about discovering how people tick and creating products that bring them delight. Creativity is important, but it becomes exciting when it’s guided by real world data. I have over five years of experience in project management, design, and marketing. I also enjoy the challenge and satisfaction of working in fast-paced and collaborative teams. I’m looking for an opportunity to wear many hats (figuratively, but open to literally) with a company that values holistic thinking and innovative design.
Graphic designer turned UX designer. I love learning how to integrate new innovative ways of making the user’s experience more immersive and supported. From user research to graphic design to content creation—every piece should have a reason for why it's there. Nix the fluff! I like thinking about product design like that feeling when you meet someone for the first time and it’s comfortable, the conversation flows and you can avoid the mundane small talk. That’s how products should feel when you interact with them from the first time onwards. Let's strive for no small talk.
From Customer service, to Automotive service now Design service. I've always had a knack for figuring out how things work, and making them better. When it comes to Ux/Ui practises, my goal is to design creative and meaningful solutions through in-depth research and iteration by mainly focus on detailed understandings of end users. By encompassing the use of teamwork and encouragement I aim to bring a fresh level of fun, cooperation, and creativity to wherever I'm placed.
My hope is to solve everyday problems by creating experiences that empower the user, and offer them the best, clearest information possible. I take pride in my broad background which allows me to be a designer unlike many others. Combining 6 years experience in project management, business consulting, programming and media production within the tech industry, I leverage my diverse skill set to provide a holistic approach towards my design process. In my spare time, I like to build hobby kits, collect sneakers and hoop. I have an unhealthy obsession with Japanese culture, fashion, design, food and...everything else.
Hi! My name is Lily. I am an accountant turned UI/UX designer. Bringing my analytical background into the creative field, I design to solve problems. Over the past 5 years, whether it is a spreadsheet file or mobile app, I have always enjoyed creating beautiful user experience by making my products easy to understand. My passion for crafting pixel perfect user interface is inspired by nature, where life begins.
When I'm not designing, I love travelling to get to know different cultures and hiking.
I knew whatever I ended up doing in life would have to be fuelled by passion. To experience something new and challenging everyday is incredibly fulfilling to me as a designer. That is where I thrive and strive.
My passion is discovering and meeting the needs of people, from working in Hospitality to the Game Industry to UX Design. I have a specific interest in how we can apply Human Centred Design thought to all facets of our daily interactions, digital and physical. My startup experience has taught me how to be agile and work in a small team while being responsible for setting my own priorities. I love beautiful landing pages, immersive micro-animations and a quickly drawn sketch. I believe in designing for user needs first through rapid prototyping and constant testing.

Living and working in Vancouver, I am a RED Academy and University of British Columbia graduate who is passionate about all things design. Almost a year into my career change to become a full-stack designer, and I am eager to keep expanding my horizons. I currently hope to work at a digital design agency so I can continue learning from great designers and help businesses build strong brands. I value authenticity, teamwork, and humour and hope to work with likeminded designers and mentors.
Hi, I’m Rianne, a self-professed nerd and passionate digital marketer. With an insatiable appetite for learning and trying new things, I decided to take RED’s Digital Marketing Diploma to gain the hard skills that would compliment my Bachelor of Commerce. When I’m not obsessing over all-things SEO and social media, I love to cook and travel.
Joseph Lee | UX Designer
I have recently made the transition into the tech industry but I believe that I have been practicing UX/UI principles throughout my journey. From sports, events, hospitality to the financial world, I have spent the last 8 years working towards delivering the best experiences to the end users. Providing creative design solutions based on research is what drives me and my curiosity towards people has led me to an education in Psychology and recently UX & UI Design at RED Academy.
Hi! My name is Liam. I'm a lover of art, apps, and mobile devices. I have spent the past few years working in a super high functioning environment, where I work and educate mobile device users directly and in small groups/workshops. The connections I have made with people and their devices has pointed me in the direction of UI. I want to help build a world of effortless, fun and beautiful interfaces with pixel perfect designs. I hope to find a team who I can shamelessly nerd-out over design and tech with, as we create together.
