Sloane is an associate design director who earned her BFA in communication design. Her background in both design and front-end development enables her to make decisions that carefully consider technical impact, while advocating for the needs of users. She’s fascinated by the role experience design plays in shaping culture, and is particularly passionate about how decisions in tech impact underrepresented groups. Sloan collaborated with designers, researchers and developers at the Philadelphia EY Design Studio for more than four years prior to joining the Portland team. She spends the majority of her spare time entertaining her two cats and adventuring in the Pacific Northwest.
