The Elements of Style

-Strunk & White-

Hello there!


I’m Raven – a Chicago-based UX/UI designer with a background in digital content strategy and marketing. My path towards user experience reflects my fascination with how people use technology to make life more interesting or better organized, add fun to the mundane or tell stories about the world. I have agency and in-house experience working with financial enterprise, manufacturing, e-commerce and large non-profit companies to improve the user experience across multiple channels. In my spare time, I’m a budding sketch noter and occasional blogger.
