MY WHY + HOW

Businesses and teams of all sizes deserve an honest consultancy of design thinking and design systems with longevity baked in — that’s where I come in.

My passions lie at the intersection of brand spirit and user needs. My take on the best way to drive business value is to double-down on design strategy and a growth mindset, while staying true to who your audience needs you to be.

I stand by processes that emphasize validation and future-proofing. Double-diamonds are an ideal state with a need for flexibility, so I provide all projects the right amount of agility and course-correction
like an F1 driver down 10 spots with the championship on the line to achieve a maximum impact.

ENCHANTÉE 👋🏽

With humble printshop beginnings, Régine began actively studying Graphic Communications and Print Production in high school and carried that passion for problem-solving through to her Bachelor’s in Visual Arts at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Since starting her career, she has worked for start-ups, design studios, and non-profits, served the higher- education and B2B/B2C tech markets, and currently takes on select personal projects, helping small businesses stake their claim in the world of effective design.

She also holds a Master's degree in User Experience from Maryland Institute College of Art where she honed her love for empathety, experiential strategy, and design systems. When not on her computer, she's usually drawing in her sketchbook or chasing her 4yo GSP around the house.
