A Little More About Me

Leah Callahan Headshot

Eager for Feedback | Fail Fast | Make it Happen

My career so far has included exploring business strategies and avenues within digital products, solving UX problems for micromoments as well as platform experiences through ideation, user journeys, and user research. I’m confident in creating design systems and developing simple, structured components. I also enjoy the process of landing on a creative direction, producing and applying visual designs, and carrying forth projects into production with front-end development.

Some Words from Others

quotes

Leah is one of the most well-rounded and fastest-producing designers I've had the pleasure to work with. She's extremely organized and has a system/workflow for everything. Whether it's ideating, wireframing, prototyping, or visual designs she's able to produce, and produce quickly. Always a pleasure working with Leah!

quotes

Leah’s ability to work fast and with purpose is staggering to say the least. Her skills as a web designer are fantastic and I would relish the opportunity to work with her again. She is highly professional, is incredibly talented, and very receptive to feedback when it’s needed. On several projects she worked with me on, I’ve seen her create hundreds of full page wireframes in a matter of days while keeping a high level of quality on each one. She is a profound asset to anyone lucky enough to work with her.

Mile a Minute | My Design Podcast

I started a design podcast with my best friend. We are two young designers that talk about our real experiences from personal life to professional development. We share real stories about our journey of where we came from and where we are going next. This is our past, our present and our future—moving a mile a minute.
