About Me

Hi, I'm Megumi (they/them), an independent designer based in California. I specialize in web design and front-end development, with expertise in advanced CSS and e-commerce systems. See a full timeline of projects in my work index.

I'm teaching a course in partnership with Index called Intro to Coding for Designers. Registration for the Fall cohort is now open.

Other projects include a zine called Feminist Fonts, a set of eco friendly stickers, and my personal digital garden. Previously, I worked in Silicon Valley as an in-house UX Designer and wrote a tutorial series called Sketch for Beginners.
