About me︎

Hello

I’m Emma “Rosie” Sycks, an Atlanta-based product designer & strategist. I am passionate about sustainability, social equity, and storytelling. Most importantly, I am passionate about people. I leverage my visual design skills with my technical knowledge of research and interaction to advocate for my users.


Education
I am currently attending The Georgia Institute of Technology as a Stamps Presidents Scholar, where I am pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Literature, Media, and Communication. While my coursework focuses primarily on Digital Media + Design, I get to take classes about everything from sustainability and cognitive science to hip-hop music and gender studies!
🎓 expected graduation: December 2022


Why design?
Growing up, I wanted to be a painter. Somehow I ended up a Georgia Tech (aka the opposite of painting school). After several classes, one or two serendipitous opportunities, and a few great mentors, I found myself in ux/product design. Product design is so appealing to me because it perfectly merges my creative, strategic, and technical sides. It's like solving really complex, really cool open-ended puzzles with a creative twist. While that may sound like a nightmare to some, I love it💛

Design is for everyone! I love the way design and techonology bring together people of all different backgrounds and walks of life to solve problems and build empathy💡
