Hint: if you don’t feel like scrolling through lengthy case studies, I’ve included the option to “Jump to Recipe”! Sometimes you don’t need to know my grandmother’s backstory, but you do need a meal for tonight’s dinner.

About Me

Hi there, I’m Tara Sleeman, a UX/UI designer blending my interests in veganism, Buddhism, and autism awareness to create empathetic digital experiences.

Much like Fairy Godmother with her potions in Shrek 2: I combine a drop of UX, a pinch of compassion, and just a hint of accessibility.

Guided by Buddhist principles of kindness and interconnectedness, I advocate for ethical design practices that prioritise empathy for all beings – human and non-human! I have a strong commitment to accessibility and inclusivity, and strive to make technology a force for good.
