Hello! I’m Tracy, and a Graphic Design graduate from OCAD University in Toronto. I'm currently a UX Designer at LinkedIn based in San Francisco, excited about designing solutions for everyday interactions with digital products and creating seamless experiences.
I started off practicing fine arts growing up, and my interests grew to graphics. I have used my painting skills to apply into my design work, such as eye for colour and composition. My interest in graphic design sprouted when I entered Design Exchange’s Graphic Design Competition in high school, which was open to students Canada-wide. I received 3rd place, and that gave me the motivation to pursue my path in design.
Of course, design doesn't revolve around my whole life. Check out my succulent page!

I also redesigned my room, first rendering a model of my decisions before renovating it!
