Hi, I'm Joanna.

Hi, my name is Joanna and I'm a Designer, vacational Creative Technologist, and certified Scrum Master. I currently work as a UX/UI Designer at a successful tech startup in New York. 

A little about me...
Born and raised in Warsaw, Poland, I spent my childhood and teenage years studying classical piano and voice (my childhood dream was to become an opera singer), taking acting and dance classes, and immersing myself in the world of film (I'm a sucker for Technicolor!). Together, these diverse creative fields gave me grounding for my interdisciplinary engagement with the most experimental modes of film, mixed media art, and animation production which I later pursued at the prestigious Film Conservatory at SUNY Purchase. 

Soon after my graduation, I had an amazing opportunity to work on a project for Vogue Studio. I was asked to create a series of videos inspired by the most recent fashion trends, that would become a part of the set design for a fashion show organized by Vogue. Working on the project, I kept thinking how interesting it would be if I could make my videos interactive and dynamic.

This led to my decision to pursue my master’s degree at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU, where I focused my studies on interaction design, creative coding, motion capture, and VR and AR technologies. I spent my time exploring the intersection of technology and design, and learned how to bring together form and function to create something that looks good and performs flawlessly. 

My work philosophy
As an Experience Designer, I understand the perfect user interface should look good and work even better. That's why it is important to me to not only stay on top of the most recent design trends and tools, but also have a deep understanding of the engineering aspect of making the user interface I design come to life. 

In my personal work, I am not afraid of stepping out of my comfort zone. I believe that the choice of tool should follow the idea and I am not afraid to pick up a new skill in order to make my work unique.
