About Me



I am a mission-lead designer and inclusion advocate. With deep empathy, understanding of user needs and technical knowledge, I design human centered end-to-end digital experiences.

Born in the Middle East, raised in Scandinavia, and now a U.S resident, I’ve been immersed in different cultures and adapted to new environments from a young age. My experiences have not only shaped me as a person, but they have also shaped me into an intuitive, empathetic and adaptive designer.

Though I have many mediums in which I express myself and have skills in, my work is predominantly focused around and in product and UX/UI design. Working across all aspects of the creative process with an open communication style and a collaborative approach towards a shared vision, purpose and goal.

“We first began working with Violet back in 2015. We were impressed with her ability to grasp and produce for us a proposal that was intelligible, yet elaborate in graphic representation and met our vision for this project with tight deadlines. Working with Violet was a pleasure. Throughout the entire process it was apparent that she was a passionate artist who loved her craft as she provided us with the flexibility to create numerous modifications that introduced special details to our proposal. Since then we have worked with Violet on several other projects.  Violet is truly a passionate graphic artist, a responsive-honest professional, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for design/graphic services.”
