About Me

image of karena pavon, product designer

I'm a product designer, art director, and hippie-at-heart from Southern California. I have a passion for creating modern and elegant user-centered designs that are equally intuitive and usable. I believe in standing at the intersection of form and function.

I started my career as a graphic designer, and my skills quickly evolved into a solid foundation of multidisciplinary design skills that range from UX/UI design, app design, user research, wireframing, prototyping, art direction, print, retail and environmental design, and photography.

In 2017, I partnered with illustrator and designer David Escobar in founding Kaand Creative Co. A bite-sized creative agency that works closely with brands on a variety of fun and innovative projects.

When not working, you'll find me learning new programs to expand my skills or collaborating with other artists in creating rejected New Yorker cartoons. I'm an occasional contributor to the 1th Collective, and my short fiction can be found in their annual Zine.
