merhaba! Or, hello!

UX Engineer and Squarespace Designer

Aylin Marie

My career didn’t start off in the creative industry. Not even close. I spent hours in a cramped office ticking away at audit reports or writing up risk procedures for banks. In 2017, I felt it was time to shift gears and start figuring out what it means to “love what you do”. I quit my job (after a year of self-teaching) and jumped into an immersive web development program. Fast forward to today — I now spend my days as a front end developer for a creative agency that focuses on social good companies in Atlanta.

On the side, I work with entrepreneurs to help launch their digital presence on different platforms, including Squarespace. There is nothing more exciting than watching people make their brand or project come to life. I know what it feels like to build and grow in a place of passion, and I know what it feels like when you’ve accomplished it! This is why I enjoy helping people create a digital space for their brand. I focus on creating clean and simple user-friendly designs that focuses on minimal aesthetics by using white space, neutral colors, and elegant typography.

If I'm not digging into code or pairing fonts, you'll find me working on some cool programs at my social good travel community at OneYoungTraveler.
