PROFILE PIC.png

Hello, I'm Evelyn!
こんにちは, 岩田と申します。

I'm a bilingual Japanese-American UX Designer specializing in highly accessible, user-centric designs. I am a strong advocate for assistive technology/accessibility and its ability to empower people. As a UX designer, I am determined to use my voice to promote accessibility and inclusivity in design. 

My personal connection to accessibility stems from my own experience with dyslexia and my bi-cultural background, which provides me with a unique perspective on non-verbal visual cues and data visualization. Let's collaborate to create intuitive and accessible products for your users!😊

I believe incorporating accessibility leads to intuitive design solutions that benefit all users.
