I'm Ellie Keller, a UX designer and avocado aficionado from Toronto. Currently, I'm working to improve the commerce experience at Shopify. In September, I'll be returning to the York/Sheridan School of Design to complete my Bachelor's in Design. Previously, I completed my Bachelor's in Psychology at Western University.
As a designer, I place emphasis on the importance of research, prototyping, and user testing in order to validate and enhance whatever I create. I build empathy by learning about human psychology in the context of digital interactions. Lately, I have been exploring motion design and how it can be used to make virtual experiences feel more natural, familiar, and understandable.
When I'm not designing, you can probably find me obsessing over dot-grid paper in a stationary store, bouldering, or trying out some weird DIY found on pinterest.
