Hi, I'm Emily. I'm a designer based in Oakland, CA.
At the moment I'm helping folks take control of their financial lives at YNAB. I work on the budgeting experience for the web and our native mobile apps.
In the past I built tools for creating in-app experiences without writing any code at Appcues, worked as design consultant for Fortune 500 companies at Slalom Build, and designed human-guided machine learning tools at Tamr. I have an academic background in cognitive science and human-computer interaction.
Some recent writing:
- A three-part series about YNAB's approach to semantic color across our apps.
- A love letter to Mailchimp's real-time password checker.
- Notes on the Appcues design team's toolkit.
