UX is a perfect blend of creativity, curiosity & problem solving.

Deep diving into UX has made me a bigger believer of using design to solve problems. I have years of experience as a visual designer; helping build brand identities, digital products and promotional materials for independent businesses. I'm able to work collaboratively as well as independently and believe in creating accessible and meaningful experiences based on design thinking and creative problem solving.

I'm committed to learning more about accessibility and diversity in design and tech, if its something you'd like to chat about - do drop me a line! I can be reached at ruzanashahab@gmail.com
