[n.] (mi-SHELL mahr-TEER) Michelle Martir

Hello! I'm Michelle Martir, a product designer & front-end engineer (also known as a design technologist) based out of the Baltimore/DC metro.

I'm just as comfortable with Git as I am with Figma. Procreate, Illustrator, and CodePen are my playgrounds. I'll bring delight to your projects, but never at the detriment of accessibility.

I value remote work, and creating a safe, equitable space for my team and audience.

You can also talk to me about Pokemon, french fries, and puns.

Sound good? Hit me up!
