Hi! I'm Gianina 👋

/jah•nee•nah/

I'm a UX Designer based in Toronto, with a strong background in visual and architectural design. I'm passionate about dissecting problems, ideating imaginatively, and designing solutions with and for people. I enjoy & embrace the challenge of high ambiguity and high constraints, and I want to help solve problems with intention.

I'm currently a UX Designer and Communications Advisor at the Ontario Government Ministry of Labour, Training, and Skills Development. I also recently completed a Master of Information at the University of Toronto in Fall 2021, concentrating in UX Design.
