Hey there, it's nice to meet you! ☀️

I’m Kylie —a Toronto-based product designer and maker of things. I graduated from OCAD University's Illustration program in 2022 and have since been excitedly diving deeper into the field of UX. My work explores the intersection between technology and design, and I love creating user experiences that are both beautiful and buttery-smooth 🥐

Outside of designing for the web, I enjoy making art that invites others into intriguing and whimsical spaces. I create both traditionally and digitally and have a blast mixing mediums whenever I can. You can often find me getting lost in a drawing, some games, or the countryside.

Feel free to reach out if you think I might be a good fit for your project—or simply to say hello! 🌿✨
