Kylie Lee
Visual UX/UI Designer
I'm a UK based visual and UX/UI designer with 3+ years experience.
After graduating from the University of Leeds in 2018 with a 1st in Digital Media, I returned to my hometown to work for a fin-tech company as a UX/UI Designer.
I have an affinity for anything visual and creative. While my skills range from graphic, digital & motion design to composite photography, my main focus and love is UX & UI design. I enjoy the product design process, and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with creating a product through many stages of refinement. 
As someone with a lot of creative energy, I also occasionally freelance on the side. It provides an outlet for me to apply and test what I've learnt in a wider setting, where I can view my work from different perspectives and see it as a part of a whole.
