Research Assistant, Design for Startups
Leslie is a communication designer. During her time at Emily Carr University, she gained years of valuable experience in UX&UI, graphic design, research, branding, and system design. Within that process, she found her pursuit in human-centred and experience design, especially in fields of medical, social, and behaviour change. Meanwhile, she discovered her strengths in generating design elements into concepts and maintaining a holistic view of the design process while perfecting it in pixels. Given the gift of having synaesthesia, Leslie has strong memories and rich feelings, which makes her an empathetic person. With that in mind, she believes that empathy empowers designers to make full use of their talents to generate meaningful solutions to real problems.
