I am Adalyn --- a maker, a dreamer, an unprofessional dancer, and a food lover. After 6 years of study in design and 3 years of working on real products, I'm obsessed with the process of design and solving problems for people. I enjoy finding simple solutions to painfully complicated interactions. I’m always excited about the process of deriving user needs from research, navigating through complex problems, balancing constraints and requirements to create meaningful user experiences. Not every problem has a perfect solution but I make sure every design detail has been thought about and is backed up by good reasons.
Design is a team sport so I put people at the center. Not only do I try to understand my users, but I also emphasize with people I work with. Although I came from a design background, I've learned to speak the engineer's language, to respect the needs and interests of team members while balancing priorities.
When I'm not designing, you can find me watching comedies🎭, reading mystery novels🔍, exploring the wild🐻, finding new ways to burn my kitchen 👩🏻🍳, and jazzing with music🕺.
(From a designer's intuition, probably 95% people write something like this in their bio probably no one reading it actually sends that email. I just want to say: I'm a super approachable (and funny🤫) person, and you won't know unless you speak to me. And a fun topic would be us talking about how I can get more people to actually reach out. I love meeting new people and talking about anything design!)
