My Design Journey

I was always passionate about creatively expressing my thoughts through art. I completed my Bachelor in Fine Arts from the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (York University) in 2015. My interests were conceptual photography and abstract paintings, through which I discussed underlying causes of social obstacles based on age, gender, economy, and religion. I was passionate about doing gallery exhibitions as it gave me opportunities to connect and communicate with the audience for a better understanding of my work. After graduation, I traveled as much as I could, watching and learning diversity and simplicity.

 

When I returned home to give birth to my child, art in digital form became more convenient to practice. With time I started to dive deeper into digital art and design ideas. In contrast to traditional art, it felt amazing to have the option to go back and change directions. In 2019 I got my Graphic and Digital Design Certificate from Parsons School of Design (The New School). I never knew how meaningful and fascinating Typography is! Learning to develop and design a product from the scratch was another empowering experience.

 

I got interested in UX Design because it allows me to go beyond my assumptions through research and provides a direct tool for a solution. It gives me a career choice, where I can tie all my skills as an artist and designer, keeping empathy at the core. Recently I completed my User-Centered Design (UX/UI) Certificate from Parsons School of Design (The New School). Now I am looking forward to taking on challenging freelance projects, also work with a team where collaboration and ambition to do something great is the goal.
