Hi! I'm Lydia, based in sunny LA. ☀️ I believe in moral, ethical design for people and the planet.
I'm currently looking to pivot to the games industry! Want to chat? Feel free to connect.
Welcome to my little corner! I've been a product designer for 6 years, originally trained in enterprise design. I'm often client facing, working side-by-side with stakeholders to create something meaningful, efficient, and modern. Everything from User Research to final prototypes are in my skillset.
More than anything, I believe in the power of design - and believe we have a moral responsibility to create ethical designs for the world. If people and the planet benefit, then we're on the right track.
I like normal people things too. In my free time I'm searching for the best boba, adventuring with my corgi, or playing video games. You can catch me on all kinds of genres: Shooters (Apex, Valorant), Tactics (TFT), Simulation (Sims, Civ, Crusader Kings), Survival, or RPGs. Always happy to talk about games!
At the forefront of everything: People come first. My clients visions, goals, and those of their end-users are number 1 priority when tackling design. I rely heavily on user-validated metrics to make sure we're solving the right problems.
Data Hierarchy can make or break an experience. I think deeply about the content we're serving, and how we're serving it. Visibility, discoverability, and accessibility
From research to execution. I'm trained to convert user experience into tangible, hi-fidelity designs ready for development hand-off. With a background in fine-arts, I can replicate and innovate whatever style is necessary.
Complex backgrounds mean an interesting perspective. Coming from the world of fine arts, 3d modeling, video, and a sprinkle of coding - I feel my bountiful foray into a variety of disciplines has set me up for an open mind when it comes to designing digital products.
MDB (Master Design Blog ) is a passion project alongside my peer Zander Georges. Together, we aim to bring meaningful, resourceful content to new and veteran designers everywhere.
