Hey, I'm Shelby!
I design for people, places, and experiences beyond the screen.
I'm a UX Designer based in Chicago.
My Design Philosophy
UX as Architecture
Designing for the Unknown | the power of openness
Every time I start a new project, I get excited about exploring something new. I have to remain open to new opportunities, new experiences, new failures, and new innovation. After all, nothing crazy ever came from a closed mind.
Openness is like a piece of furniture in a room. It’s the building block to a beautiful creation.
