Hi there, I'm Emily Zink, a user interface designer. 
I take pride in:
Embracing the new to deliver a fresh perspective built upon strong design principles.
Providing a keen eye of quality and elegance.
Bridging the gap between design and implementation.
Words that describe me:
Dependable, adaptable, and curious.
For me, good design starts and ends with the user. It's about taking the time to get to know them and their goals in context. I also believe that the end of the design process is just as important as the beginning. During handoff, I take an active role in working through interactions and building out designs with developers. I make a point to strive for excellence together rather than an unrealistic level of perfection alone.
Staying current and learning from others is key to my process improvement, so I take design trainings and attend conferences regularly. My latest studies are focused on applying accessibility and gamification to my work to ensure that my designs are both inclusive and engaging. Whenever I'm not working on my craft, I go out to find inspiration in nature, people, and architecture, usually through hiking or traveling. Or I might just stay in with a good video game and a cup of tea.
