Designing for
people and
planet

Julie Sanduski, Freelance UX Designer

I’m a designer, circular economy advocate, and kitchen appliance enthusiast

I create thoughtful experiences that balance people and planet with function and purpose. Whether on a small team or at a Fortune 500 company, I value a small team spirit, a student mindset, and a “we can do this” work ethic. I emphasize the value of research and you can always count me in for a quick experiment. At my core is a love for bringing people together, especially over a good meal made in my favorite skillet.
