here's what i'm doing now

I'm currently a product designer turned product illustrator at HubSpot, creating illustrations for the product, and answering any questions people may have in relation to illustrations, visual design, and user interface.

As a person who grew up with a rough background, I'm actively exploring solutions on diversity, how designers get paid what they deserve, and how I can best advise new design grads and those wanting to get into art, illustration, design, and tech.

In turn, I occasionally talk to people 1:1 out of imposter syndrome, give advice on interviews, edit occasional resumes, and help people negotiate fair salaries to pay rent, 'cause living in Boston ain't cheap. 


here's how i spend my days

  • Getting back into books a lot more, you can check out what I'm currently reading here.
  • Thinking about illustration and how it expands to larger design systems.
  • Attempting to get better at public speaking and writing.

  • For short, passing thoughts in my mind, find me on Twitter @suechews.
