Interaction Designer Front-End Developer




Hi! I'm Carie Phon

Carie Phon

I’m a designer and developer with a passion for interaction design. In 2015, I graduated with a Masters in Web Design and New Media at the Academy of Art University.

My experience ranges from web and print design to user interface and front-end development. I’m always advocating for the user: balancing aesthetics with technology and delight with usability.

When I’m not desiging or coding, you’ll find me exploring new places to eat, watching MasterChef, sketching, and playing with my dog Tofu.
