Silvia Diffenderfer says



Designing to engage & inspire

I’m an interaction designer sketching and clicking away in Southern California. I love crafting digital experiences that promote human wellbeing, and I get genuine joy out of working on teams to make concepts and products shine. With a background in psychology, fine arts, and English, I approach design with a keen interest in cognition, creativity, and communication. A sense of play is always good, too!

When not immersed in design, I'm often drawing, noodling around with music composition, and marveling at the wonders of science and nature.
