Hi there! I'm Rosanina (or Nina!) —
I am a User Experience and Digital Designer with a love of graphic design, photography and video production. In May 2017, I graduated from Victoria University of Wellington with a Bachelor of Design Innovation majoring in Media Design and Information Systems. I am also an alumna of New York Film Academy's 2012 summer program in Los Angeles, California. Previously designing for companies including Touchcast New Zealand and Melon Heath, I have recently finished working as an Information Design Intern at Walt Disney Imagineering.

I am a small, curious human who often gets weirdly excited over aesthetic design, functionality and crafting experiences through user experience design. I enjoy the thrill of problem solving, asking lots of questions (no matter how common or stupid they may be) and strive to create effective solutions for web, mobile or other mediums. When I'm not head deep in solving UX problems, you will probably find me out wandering wherever my camera takes me, joining local hackathons, playing and creating video games.
