Who Am I?
Is that not a question we all ask ourselves…?
I’m Mary-Ann Zykin and I’m a designer. I’m a communicator and a problem solver, and my goal is to build designs and websites that are functional, visually appealing, organized, and well thought out.
I’m all about the process and I care deeply about craft. To me, the journey of creating a great design or website is just as (if not more) fulfilling as releasing the end product out into the wild.
I’m a huge advocate for unobtrusive user experience and users’ right to privacy, and I’m not afraid to push back when a request or decision is detrimental to the end user’s needs and experience.
I’m goal-oriented and big-picture focused, so if I sound like a great fit for your next project, send me a note!
