Amelia Hancock

Hi there! I'm Amelia.

I'm a Louisiana-born Brookyn-dwelling designer who cultivates curiosity in how people work, learn, and play. I'm constantly searching for design in everyday things, and ways to infuse real-life experiences into digital products.

My approach to design is conversational: I find it smart (and polite) to start with questions (?) which inevitably lead to insights (!) which form a baseline for iteration and collaboration (,) and result in a round solution (.)

I get most excited about complex design problems – usually that involve multiple devices, locations, user needs, and data sources. Added bonus: tackling subject matter that I have absolutely no prior understanding of (like baseball, or biomechanical research). 

In my life-before-Experience-Design, I earned three degrees learning about designing communication, forming business strategies, and designing interactions. Somewhere in between, I waited a lot of tables, took a year of improv classes, and helped design food packaging (including the label for Peter Pan Peanut Butter).

In my spare time, I love to read and spend time outdoors. Check out what my eyes are up to on my books-read spreadsheet and my VSCO page

I'd love nothing more than to talk about any of the above, with you, over coffee.
