Gráinne Buckley - Aurras

Meet Gráinne

Ever since I was young, I have always enjoyed problem solving and puzzles, and I viewed a design career as means to try to solve the bigger ‘puzzles’ of the world. My interest in social and political issues directs a lot of my work, and I gravitate towards projects that have a strong social impact and can create or influence positive change. 

While I enjoy all aspects of design, I particularly enjoy UX/UI design and design research. To me, the design process is all about the people, and ensuring that every aspect of the user experience is thought through.

Outside of UX/UI I enjoy design visualisation and Solidworks modelling, as I find that being able to see your design come to life is one of the most rewarding parts of design. 

I am looking forward to where my career brings me next. Thank you for checking out my project!
