Hey, I'm Mackenzie. I’m a product designer, illustrator & side-project enthusiast. I'm currently leading design over at Podia.
Here are some products / projects I've launched:
Adobe Illustrator Essentials Course
This is a free course covering only the essential things you need to know (I don't cover everything so it's not overwhelming) to start using Adobe Illustrator.
Blocks Wireframing Kit for Sketch
I made this wireframe kit to advantage of Sketch symbols to make the wireframing process as easy as drag & dropping in the layout you want.
This is a free pack of emojis for Slack, based on my cat Chico :)
Watch Me Practice
This was an experiment where I live-streamed some of my illustration & UI design practice sessions. I did 15 livestreams, but ended up stopping the project.
Professional placeholder logos to use in UI mockups when you don’t have a real logo to use.

A premium (and massive) 67 video course coving everything that developers, and beginner designers, struggle with when it comes to design.
Curated color palette inspiration site build in 24 hours using Ruby on Rails.

This was my very first side project. It was a blog called Artists Inspire Artists (aia) where I would find / feature amazing artwork from amazing artists to inspire others to create. (Note, this site looked a lot nicer when I ran it lol)
