Who is Amy Lea Coates (that's me)
Born in Toronto. Based in Brooklyn.
Curious Cat. Interaction Designer @ Google.
I have designed intuitive, world-class digital experiences for great big companies like Google, Nike, Timex, Target, Chysler, Nissan, and Chase, just to name a few of my faves.
In 2014 I "did a Sagmeister". I took a sabbatical after 7 years of working full-time at various digital creative agencies to travel around the world for a year. I discovered many interesting differences and as many incredible similarities across cultures in the ways people express art, architecture, design, fashion, food, coffee, and so much more that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I also wrote a travel blog, took thousands of photos, and met an amazing guy in Berlin who's now my husband.
I currently live in Brooklyn, NY and work as an Interaction Designer at Google.
