Hi! My name is Jalena Hay. I’m a Product Designer, Accessible Designer + Advocate, Textile Designer, Artist, Amateur Boxing Champion, & New Mom.

SO....WHATS MY STORY ?

MY BACKGROUND

I come from a unique background of Drawing and Printmaking. I studied in other countries working on various art forms. Working as a textile designer for many years, I created prints for major fashion, home, and hospitality companies all over the world! I have created products that have won awards (Disney Cruise Throw Blankets) and are being worn at J.Crew. I have a strong comprehension of a product life cycle, visual design, brand design, and product thinking. I also have an exceptional eye for color, overall layout, and creating a pixel perfect design.

WHERE I THRIVE?

I am a very adaptable designer and thrive in collaborating with other people who are passionate about making an impact in a company. I have a lot of experience working remote (and currently work remote). I am able to work independently and within different teams. It is important for myself to continue to learn and improve my skills as a designer. I love making an impact with a company and helping them improve their website's Accessibility.

WHAT I CURRENTLY DO?

Senior Product Designer at Corvus Insurance. I am the lead designer on an agile scrum team, executing end-to-end designs for the website. Alongside I am an Accessibility advocate and educator for the design team and design system.  I am working to focus more on building Design Systems with Accessibility. 

I am also studying for my IAAP Certification. Accessibility and inclusive design are passions of mine as a designer. I am a member of Larunda Accessibility Solutions, an all women organization that is dedicated to making the web more accessible to everyone.
