MK Cook, UX/UI Designer

About

Howdy, nice to meet you.

 
 Going great lengths for design and curiosity.
 
 

I'm M.K.

I am a broad spectrum designer with 7 years of UX/UI Design experience and over a decade of graphic design experience. I received my BA in Journalism with a focus on Magazine Print Design and an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in Graphic Design. I’ve designed for large tech companies, museums, non-profits, and inspiring personal brands.

User empathy is at the heart of everything I do. I talk to customers in order to gain this understanding with the goal of designing beautiful and useful products, services and brands that bring delight and meet user needs. I get a thrill from visualizing an intangible idea, that is often bouncing around in the mind of my client, and making it real. I am intensely curious and thrive on group ideation and fast paced projects.
