I am Marisa Bivi

With a background in graphic design, I bring dynamic visual direction to UX projects. I am a motivated individual with a proven ability to take on new assignments and see them through to completion. I believe that collaboration is key to ensuring the best solution that blends technical limitations and the goals of users and stakeholders.

Further, I take pride in solving difficult problems with simple, creative solutions that are approachable and intuitive to people of diverse backgrounds and needs. To achieve this goal, I feel it is important to continue to expand my knowledge while also pulling from my visual background. Of course, no matter the problem I am working to solve, a cup of tea is always part of my process.
