Hi, I'm Caroline.

Thanks for dropping by! I'm a recent graduate from Carleton University, where I studied Industrial Design and Business. I am passionate about understanding and shaping the way we interact with products, interfaces, and the world.

What does that mean? I love research, talking to real people about what is important to them, prototyping and playing with design, and understanding big messy problems. Most of all, I love doing this with a team of other passionate people.

I am currently seeking a full-time position at a company where I can continue to grow as a researcher and designer. To talk UX or to exchange .gifs, I can be reached at carolinesmeenk@gmail.com
