As a UX designer, I have learned the importance of empathy. The world is full of diverse needs and ideas and I believe that being able to see past my own perspective is key to creating impactful and inclusive design work.
What fascinates me about design is the focus on innovation, solving problems, and continually evolving in a way that is centered around users and making their experience pleasantly functional. As a designer, focusing on helping people is what allows me to produce engaging experiences that solve real world problems.

Hi! My name is Amani Elaameir and I am an illustrator and designer based in Seattle, Washington.

I am a UX designer passionate about reimagining design’s role in dismantling systemic racism and improving service delivery in marginalized communities. Design has helped me understand the connection between my experiences as a Black woman, daughter of the African diaspora, and refugee. Too many services, products, and applications are not designed with communities like mine in mind. I am passionate about harnessing the power of design to help develop new ways to improve access in communities like my own, one design at a time. Life is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
I am a Graphic Designer and UI/UX Designer aiming to create inspiring pieces. My goal is to create user-friendly designs for everyone to have the most pleasant experience possible. My strength is that I can adapt to a variety of mediums, not just specialize in one art style. I like to try out many things to discover my potential so that I can understand more about myself. I enjoy looking at my results, whether the design turned out well or not, and continue to grow from these experiences.
What I’ve come to realize is that what sticks with me the most is when something is able to become someone’s “favorite”. When a character, story, movie, or really anything is chosen as as this prestigious title, there must be a reason for why that is. That’s really what I want to do, just design things that are able to become that favorite.

As a designer, I strive to make games that empower marginalized groups and individuals. I specifically hope to empower those within my communities. I also focus my designs on art and the development of game experiences. I hope to add games to the market that will change how characters in games are viewed entirely based on appearance, race, dress, etc. I focus on the design and development of user-centered experiences through games and constantly strive to improve my skills in that endeavor.
As a designer, I’ve always valued visual art and design because of its ability to communicate a message or idea without the need for verbal communication, something that I’ve always personally struggled with. It’s what I love about art and what I want to achieve and explore in my work.
