My name is Sara Finkle (she/her). I'm a product designer and musician.
Composing music taught me a lot about problem solving and finding creative solutions. Practicing this kind of thinking helped ease the transition into design.I have a strong musical background as a composer and vocalist that I celebrated with my modern fusion EP, SINK or SWIM, and my pop-rock group, K SaraSara.
I taught elementary school (ESL and fourth grade), as well as voice and beginner piano lessons. I learned how to break down and communicate information so that people of all ages would understand. This challenge was very expansive.
What brought me to product design is my love of psychology and human behavior.
I'm obsessed with creative products that make our lives better in some way.
Whether the experience is an introduction to something exciting or a tiny way to make the everyday a little easier.
I enjoy the end-to-end design process.
I employ design thinking to plan and deliver results.
I conduct user research, understand the user, design solutions, conduct usability tests and iterate based on findings.
I always keep in mind that the design process is flexible, which allows the process to adapt to whatever a project may need.
In 2020, like most people in the world, my life shifted drastically due to the pandemic. I found myself at a crossroads and decided to head in the direction of Product Design.
