NicholeAquino_profile.png

I am a process-driven designer with a decade of graphic design experience and 3+ years experience in UX design. 
Constantly refining my design process, I strive to achieve strategic innovation for any design challenge.

 
 

–– With a background in nonprofit work, empathy is rooted in my process. Previously, I was Creative Director at Educate2Envision International where I also assisted in program development.

Currently I am building technology to help empower older adults and their caregivers as a design fellow at Blue Ridge Labs, the social impact incubator at Robin Hood Foundation, New York's largest poverty-fighting organization.
