Akendi Alumnus

Monica's unique ability to translate human behaviour to a cohesive and unique aesthetic vision and experience are what make her an asset to the Akendi team. After attaining her degree in Graphic Design from York University/Sheridan College Monica worked as a design consultant and Creative Director for 3 years. This lead Monica to really value the importance of understanding the user and their goals when designing a truly impactful design project. She successfully applied these values to a range of mediums including print, interactive web, environment and product design to create a holistic experience. In addition to her time at Akendi, Monica's unabated interest to create memorable experiences and enrich drew her to continue her education in Human-Computer Interaction where she is working towards her MaSC at Carleton University. When she doesn't have her nose in the books she has contributed her expertise to a number of design projects in the form of foundational structuring in information architectures to creating hi-fidelity wireframes.
