Director of Design at Shopify
Director of Design at Shopify and author of Tragic Design, Cynthia is passionate about human beings and their means of communication. She has always sought a deeper understanding of how people think, interact, and connect.
Cynthia excels particularly in a field that is not always fully understood: she creates smart, emotional connections between brands and users. She has a knack for strategic design, ergonomics, and problem solving. Her wide range of experiences brought her broad recognition as a leading expert on multi-platform interface design and a place in the Infopresse 30 under 30.
On top of her daytime job, Cynthia is regularly invited to speak at events around the world, where her playful approach both startles and charms. In her conferences, she shares her passion and her point of view: user-centered design is a reality, not a utopian methodology.
