I am a “Full-Stack Designer”

A full-stack designer (not to be confused with the full-stack developer) is a person who masters multiple design disciplines that they can use to fully conceptualize and/or render a full design system or product. Paired with my entrepreneurial spirit, this means that I can help you design almost anything.

I Don’t Just Design Beautiful Things; I Design Ethical, Humane Experiences

Over time, as a designer, I’ve learned that people just don’t want beautiful design- they want designs that communicate and invoke emotions within them.

Motivated by the incredible power that STEAM has to drive social progress, I infuse empathy and social awareness into my design process.
This allows me the unique ability to create more culturally sensitive and inclusive products for all users. I use my prior professional experiences as a product manager, brand strategist, and graphic designer to design innovative, inclusive experiences that center the expressed desires of users—especially demographics typically underrepresented in user research.

My design business is named Aanu because it is an apt summation of the driving factor of my journey as a creative professional. As an LBGT+ black woman, providing representation and more diverse voices into tech is my primary motivation. Aanu is a Yoruba word that loosely translates to “empathy”. Empathy is at the heart of everything that I design.
