hey, I'm melody!

I'm a freelance UI/UX designer currently located in the Bay Area.
I design for web and mobile, combining user research and content strategy to strengthen user experience.

One of my favorite things about design is getting to learn more about people. I believe focusing on who will be using your product and designing to meet their needs is what makes a successful experience.

I graduated with a Master of Communication in Digital Media from the University of Washington. My degree concentrated on user-centered design, user research, and content strategy.

Specialties: User-Centered Design, User Interface Design, User Research, Content Strategy, UX Writing, Storytelling, Visual Design, Design Thinking, & Design Strategy.

I’m also a live stream host on Adobe Live where I connect with the design community and talk about UI/UX design with a featured designer each week! Together, we share design advice, tips & tricks about Adobe Xd, and give feedback on design challenge submissions and portfolios.

When I'm not working on design, you can find me at a concert, drinking some boba, or hanging out with my cat, Luna ✨
