Hi, I'm Allison.
I work with in-house teams to create beautiful solutions. In the fall of 2019, I completed the UX Design program at General Assembly here in Seattle. With these new perspectives and my experience with nonprofit organizations, I'm looking for a new role on a great team that truly empathizes with their end-users. I find that strong, diverse teams and clear goals bring immense value to my work.
I'm looking to combine my visual design skills and experience with content strategy, information architecture, and systems—into a role as a UX designer or program manager. I'll feel like I hit the jackpot if I'm able to lead others to generate ideas and brainstorm, analyze research findings, and ask great questions. I look forward to continuing to mentor younger designers, sharing sketches that spark new ideas, and fine-tuning the details before shipping a product.
For the past five years, I've been focused on the creative work and strategic communications of two of Seattle's oldest churches. Each community is over 100 years old, and both have experienced significant organizational restructures and growth in recent years. In a city experiencing massive changes, these organizations are innovating. They're growing, building, expanding, and reorganizing in spaces of empathy to connect deeply within their neighborhoods. It has been incredibly meaningful for me to be part of such diverse communities.
Most recently, I've been working a short design contract with Ravensburger. You may know them as the creators of well-made jigsaw puzzles and licensed products for brands like Disney.
In my personal time, I create greeting cards, backpack, cross-country ski, and one Friday each month, you'll find me sharing hugs and high fives with the community at CreativeMornings Seattle.
