Hello, my name is Winnie
I'm currently a 3rd year student at George Brown College for Interaction Design and Development due to graduate spring 2022 and eager to secure challenging roles in UX, UI, branding and product design.
My studies have provided a broad range of skills in Adobe Creative Suite, Figma, animation, HTML/CSS, usability testing, prototyping and basic human factors and ergonomics. Alongside this, I have developed strong communication and organization skills while working in teams when executing projects.
While working freelance, I developed a range of visual content for social media campaigns and have designed websites through Squarespace and Wordpress for small, local entrepreneurs. My ability to efficiently turn around creative and eye-catching social media content has helped increase my clients’ engagement rates and fit consistently with their brand identity. Through creating curated social media content for my clients', I have resulted in consistent engagement YoY and 30+ successfully secured brand partnerships.
I am eager to hear more about potential career and internship opportunities and I'm enthusiastic to chat about job openings within interaction design and branding!
