( Not in an actual nutshell )
Patty is a UI / UX designer who gravitates towards creative strategy, HCD, branding, CRO, illustration and a bit of coding. My portfolio includes companies such as Kissmetrics, Dice, Roc Nation, Toptal and more. I design for user needs, am fond of JTBD for user research and design in atomic for lean-agile prototyping.
As a former San Francisco in-house worker bee, I am now a nomadic freelancer. I work with a variety of clients, from e-commerce to travel agencies, to help define their audience needs, define their brand through psychology based exercises, identify opportunities, and to increase their functionality. I also really like puppies.

Figure out customer wants and then align them with company goals. Expand endlessly during brainstorming and curate what matters afterward. Criticism is your friend; a thick skin is warranted.

Discounts to those who do good

Therefore, she refuses projects that promote the sales of pollutants or to work with companies with a history of animal cruelty or discrimination based off of any personal identity.
On the upside, discounts are available to brands that strongly align with her values:
