Hello again!

A picture of me.

I'm Katie Cullinan, a senior product designer at Big Human. As an end-to-end designer, I take projects through every stage of the design process: leading discovery workshops, research, design, prototyping, and working with development teams.

My work combines a background in architecture and UX design with a commitment to solving problems for people and businesses. I've created products and websites for a wide variety of brands in technology, finance, healthcare, media, retail, and music.

Previously, I was an Experience Designer at ICF Olson where I worked on a variety of platforms and websites for national and international clients. I graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.S. in Architecture and received an M.S. in Business with a concentration in Experience Design from VCU Brandcenter.

On the weekends you can usually find me in an art museum, vintage furniture store, or lately, on the couch with a cat.
