Hi, I'm Babs. 👋

I help to create tools and experiences to pragmatically eliminate pain points and humanise technology through design.
Using research and code, I craft, think, and play in the intersection of design and technology, with the human in between being what excites me most. I value constant iteration of my projects, research and feedback, while always considering issues of inclusion and ethics. In addition to conceptualising at a macro level, I'm detail-oriented and like to focus on micro interactions during the design and prototyping process.

When I'm not designing, you can find me running and in the gym, walking around town, or in a bookstore, where I usually buy feminist literature and books about equality, graphic and ethical design.
