A decade ago Cassie studied Graphic Design at the University of Florida, wandered over to England and worked in digital design for a bunch of fancy brands, then moved to Canada and found her soul in personal, healthcare and non-profit projects. She has since become Design Director at the Mozilla Foundation, leading the design team for Mozilla’s many advocacy and education initiatives.
Cass and her partner-in-crime Mark are obsessed with all things near to their adopted hometown, and they are using design to put their Paris (Ontario) on the map. They are responsible for creating Jane & Jury – a design business and highly curated blog, Paris Lectures – a local small-town event series, Women&&Tech – longform interviews celebrating women’s careers in tech, and two remarkable baby daughters (best creations yet).
Cassie regularly speaks around the world and writes articles about the craft of design, teams and process. Her writing has appeared in A List Apart, SmashingMag, .Net Mag, Offscreen Magazine, Pastry Box Project, and more. She loves connecting with likeminded folks, so say hi!
