Mariel has a fine arts background—her interest in painting led her to attend a university for art and design—and she became interested in graphic design during her undergraduate years. While freelancing as a graphic designer, Mariel began immersing herself in more web-based projects. Eventually, this led her to the UX design role at Shopify.

Mariel starts her day by participating in a stand-up meeting with her fellow Design Team members, fostering collaboration among the designers. Mariel particularly enjoys her team’s weekly events—most recently, the designers spent an afternoon creating Post-it note murals. It’s during times like these that Mariel finds work most enjoyable—bonding with co-workers while exercising her sense of creativity.
