Nice to meet you! 👋

He/him 👱🏻‍♂️🏳️‍🌈

Hi! I’m Griffen Schwiesow, a UX designer and front-end engineer studying Human-Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) at the University of Washington, where I’m the president of the HCDE Student Association.

I’m also a web development and creative design intern at the Seattle Department of Transportation.

I have experience building and maintaining websites of all sizes, and I do so inclusively — I believe inclusive design should be a web standard.

In my spare time, I’m usually studying languages, primarliy on Duolingo:

  • 日本語
  • 中文
  • polski
  • ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi

I care strongly about multilingual accessibility and design. If you want to talk, send me a message!
