This is the work and journal of Krystyn Heide, a designer living in New York City.
I love jukeboxes, curly braces, handclaps, comically false eyelashes, vespas, somersaults, zombie movies and my dog, Pixel.
I'm Senior Product Designer at Squarespace, where seven years ago I joined the company's founder to define the design of our brand and templates. I've also worked with major brands, nonprofits, and noteworthy clients like AT&T, Kiehls, Cadillac, and This American Life.
My last name comes from my Austrian ancestors, the Aufderheides, and is pronounced "Hi-duh".
I talk and write about topics such as online authenticity, creating good experiences, and my personal journey as a designer. Write me with inquiries or just to say hi at email@example.com.
