Hey there! I'm Bella Colosimo, a UX/UI designer committed to crafting user-centered digital experiences.

With a Bachelor's in Technology, Arts, and Media, and a Master's in Creative Technologies and Design, I blend creative innovation with technical skills.

I've spent nearly two years at FranklinCovey as a UX/UI Designer. My toolkit includes user-centered design, UX/UI expertise, Figma, and front-end coding. Collaborating with diverse teams has refined my skills and deepened my appreciation for holistic design.


My mantra: always design for the user, not the designer.
