Hi! I design experiences.

Design must reflect the world around us. We have to explore every angle, unify our voice and choices, in order to build a successful product for current and future users. 


My name is Mackenzie Brayan and I'm all about empathy, solid research, story telling, and aesthetics. I want to think bigger and better, but maintain the details that will get us there. Sticking to the basics while always looking to reinvent the wheel but not overcomplicating it. 

What else do I do? I paint, draw, write, watch films, and hang out with my cat and dog. You'll usually find me with some kind of shade of pink on top of my hair these days. And duh, I love exploring Chicago (and beyond).
