Writer & Designer

Labor Résumé About

Hello, I’m Leslie Zhang.

I'm free from the shackles of academia, having finished up my coursework in journalism and design at Northwestern University. I'm currently on contract with Instagram as a design researcher for @design.

I’m interested in the intersections of design, media, politics and popular culture. Lately, I've been thinking about how UX design can move away from screens and into the tangible.

I spend my free time compiling extremely specific playlists on Spotify, reading books and torturing myself on the megaformer. Eventually, I’d like to learn ceramics and how to build my own furniture.
