Charlotte is completing her victory lap and degree in Visual Communication Design in the School of Visual Arts. She is besotted with user experience design and has been fortunate enough to explore multiple concentrations through independent study, internships, and study abroad. She is confident that a good user experience is essential to everything from apps, to trails, to stairwells, to toys and games. She believes that the things we interact with daily will ultimately be things that shape us and change us, so why not make them with thought? She is a tactile creature and enjoys finding multiple ways to approach problems collaboratively or alone. Charlotte has traveled to more than 15 countries with the hard work of her Mum who is an all-around boss and flight attendant. Charlotte hopes to continue her worldly travels in search of new interfaces and experiences both in design and adventure.
