Hello everyone! My name is Ross Meredith. I am an emerging interaction designer working at the crossroads of graphic design, UX/UI, and data visualization. At Santa Monica College, I have developed countless new design skills, such as researching, crafting, pivoting, prototyping, and testing creative solutions for life’s shortcomings. Currently, I am one of two Social Media Directors at AIGA LA, the professional association for design. Since being in this position, I have gained DEI training, leadership experience, and have improved my collaboration skills. Working on teams to solve complex design challenges is where I get to flex my design thinking process. When working on a project, I love deep-diving into the research and interviewing people to ensure that their stories, perspectives, and real needs drive the final solution. Thank you for listening. I look forward to talking with you.
