Christie Walsh

Design Nerd


I am a multifaceted designer based in Chicago with a passion for all things visual, UI, and UX design.

With a degree in computer science and a 15-year career as a graphic designer, I’m well-versed in communicating using both technology and aesthetics. I’ve worked in environments ranging from a small museum to a pioneer in online grocery delivery, and I’ve loved adapting to each company’s unique challenges. I recently completed an immersive bootcamp to further incorporate research and user-centric methods in my design process.

Outside of design, you'll find me out and about with my dog, baking cupcakes, or crafting with my friends.
