About Rayna

Thanks for showing interest in my portfolio! My name is Rayna Kunzman; I am a Product/UI Designer with 4+ years of experience.

Over the last 4+ years, I have worked on digital products in IoT, FinTech, Secondary and Post Secondary Education, and the Arts. 

My design approach focuses on building design systems that lend themselves to simple tech implementation while upholding industry accessibility best practices. As technology intertwines itself more with daily life, it is essential to make that integration seamless and ideally delightful. My passion is in design that helps others, using the latest research and trends to simplify lives.

I studied at the Metropolitan State University of Denver, where I received a BFA in Communication Design. During my time at MSU Denver, I focused on UI/UX, usability, and web development.

Curiosity fuels me. I grew up with stacks of encyclopedias and the infancy of Google. The fact that I will never know everything that there is to know humbles me and motivates me to be a better person and a better designer.

I question constantly: What is the purest form of the statement I am making? I have learned that simplicity is effective. I aim to create refined and concise visual statements when applicable.

The world's scale amazes me and I strive to learn about it as much as I can. Not only through design but also through all forms of media. I believe it is imperative as a designer to keep my finger on new forms of art, communication, and video games. One of my biggest hobbies is exploring the world around me: finding the new and learning all about it. It is important to me as a consumer of media but more as a creator.
