Bio

Shokai Carter Sinclair

Shokai Sinclair

I’m a UX designer with digital marketing expertise that supercharges my ability to design products that are both user-friendly and give them a competitive edge in the market.

I’m passionate about setting a high standard for accessibility, sustainability, and trauma-informed design. Too often tacked on as a costly afterthought just prior to launch (or not at all), I prefer to keep them top of mind in throughout the Agile process.

For me, this mainly means ensuring my designs work well with WCAG guidelines, working closely with software engineers to ensure my designs can be translated into lightweight code with a low carbon footprint, and structuring user research sessions with care for the needs participants and other researchers.

When I’m not in the midst of a design sprint, you can find me painting or drawing at my easel, working in the garden, or preparing yummy meals for my discerning kiddo.
