Catt Small and I recently did an interview with InVision for their interview series Inside Design. We spoke about what it was like designing for Etsy’s buyers and sellers and our design team culture. We also had a super fun photoshoot slash brainstorming session with our design teammates in Brooklyn Bridge Park!
Bryn Jackson and Brian Lovin run Design Details, an interview podcast with designers. They came to Etsy to do a recording of a panel-style interview with me, Justin Edmond, and Joel Califa. It was super fun but a little scary—it was recorded in front of a live audience! I had a ton of fun talking about things like how we all became designers, management vs. individual contributor roles, and Neopets.
I had the honor of writing an article for A List Apart on the role research can play as we make our way through the design process. I had been reading A List Apart and referencing it since the earliest days that I was building websites, so this opportunity was especially exciting to me!
This past April I spoke at Industry Conf in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. Industry Conf covers practical topics about the web, ranging from research to design to backend development.
On Tuesday, March 18th, Huge is having a flea market for local Brooklyn artists from 5:30-8PM. I’ll be selling emoji embroidery there AND introducing a new pattern. Come hang!
I’m excited to announce that on December 12th I’ll be a seller in the first-ever Emoji Pop-up Market as part of the Emoji Art and Design Show. I’ve been embroidering emoji day and night in preparation and will be selling thumbs ups, poops, and dancers. Come by to check out the art show, say hi, and buy some handcrafted emoji!
