Hi I'm Natasha

A product and visual designer with hopes to create meaningful work that defies boundaries and starts new conversations. Through design, I hope to create work that impacts everyday life even if it’s in the smallest way possible. While my heart lies with UX/UI design, I also love animation, typography, and graphic design. Topics that currently interest me are machine learning, AI technology, human-centred design, and inclusive design. 

I’ve always been passionate about creating change, problem-solving and creative thinking which led me to pursue a bachelors degree in design with the York/Sheridan Design Program (YSDN). In my first three years of university, I’ve been the events coordinator and vice-chair of the Design Students Association where I’ve helped cultivate a design community within the university and also lead a trip to New York City where students were able to connect with some of the city’s best design agencies. More recently, I was the vice president of creative design of My Networking Club where I designed an identity for the newly established York University chapter. I’m currently designing patient and clinician facing interfaces for University Health Network.

I love meeting new people and continuing my learning through diverse experiences. If you have anything interesting to say, don’t be scared to reach out!
