Hi, I'm Lizzy Klingen

Bay Area based experience designer + illustrator

I currently am a product design lead @ WorkBoard, and previously designed experiences @ Adobe. My undergraduate degrees were in Cognitive Science and Practice of Art from UC Berkeley.

I hosted a designathon with WorkBoard users to codesign the future of the platform.

This was my first experience co-designing with customers and went so far beyond typical user research sessions.

See the designathon >>

I redesigned a major part of the WorkBoard application that allows users to input OKRs into the system.

This project was the beginning of implementing a design system and improving the experience of CRUD within the platform.

Lately I’ve been thinking about:

  • designing for AI
  • in-product illustration
  • empathy as a learned skill
  • the effects of menopause and women’s health

Lately I’ve been reading:

  • Design is Storytelling by Ellen Lupton
  • Mismatch by Kat Holmes
  • Reductionism in Art and Brain Science by Eric R. Kandel
