Hi, I'm Molly, an interdisciplinary freelance designer.
My specialties include interactive art direction and UI design. I focus on using visuals to influence usability. While I strive to create the most intuitive user experiences, I do not believe that functionality limits aesthetics. I aim to push the bounds of art and design by creating colorful, cheerful, and bold graphics.
Before working as a fulltime freelancer, I worked as Design Director at Opternative, a startup based out of Chicago which created the first online eye exam. My time there was split between product and marketing. I worked on everything from usability testing, wireframes, portal designs, a mobile remote control, digital and physical promotional materials, and more. As Design Director, I strived to maintain brand consistency throughout all areas of the company. Prior to that, I worked as a visual UI designer at digital marketing agencies in Chicago and New York. There, I focused on promotional mobile apps and analytic dashboards for clients including American Express, Nickelodeon, Jim Beam, Random House, and Discovery Channel.
