Hey there,

I'm Grace.

I’m a product designer who began their career as the quiet, artsy kid at the back of the classroom, constantly doodling in their workbooks. My combined passions for art, storytelling, and psychology brought me here, in a position where I can demystify the everyday problems of users and empower them with delightful experiences and solutions. I studied Global Business and Digital Arts at the University of Waterloo, and as a recent grad, I'm looking forward to my next chapter!


VP Design & Product Designer

UW Blueprint—January 2019 to April 2021

I spent a few terms building tech for social good at UW Blueprint as a product designer. I was on several projects partnered with NPO organizations to build products like web applications, dashboards, and e-commerce platforms. On my most recent and last term of Blueprint, I helped to facilitate strong culture and mentorship within the design team.

Organizer & Logistics

UW/UX —September 2020 to March 2021

I helped to organize the TILE designathon with UW/UX, an organization dedicated to growing the design community at the University of Waterloo. As an organizer, I helped to determine the goals of our event, reach out to sponsors, create judging plans and more.

Design Lead & Product Designer

StarterHacks—May 2018 to July 2020

StarterHacks is a beginner-focused hackathon that I helped organize. I was the Design Director from May 2018 to April 2019 and stayed on the team to work further on our internal tools. Some of the projects I worked on include designing the website, mentor connect app, and marketing materials.
