Hey there! My name is Molly Lester and I’m a UX/UI Designer. I hail from a little known city outside of Detroit called Farmington Hills. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in Art and Design, I became a freelance graphic designer and fell in love with creating engaging user experiences.
In this quest, I found UX/UI and subsequently DESIGNATION, an intense and immersive UX/UI Bootcamp in the heart of Chicago. There I learned how to transform user insights into strategy and design. After completing the course, I was selected to stay on as a Designer-in-Residence to help facilitate the virtual and in-person curriculum.
I love taking raw data and turning it something that is not only beautiful, but human. I strive to make my work both delightful and intuitive. I currently live in Chicago and when I’m not whiling away the hours on pixel perfection, I enjoy laser tag, large caprese salads, and being an all around nerdbot.
