Hi everyone! I'm Emma and I've joined DEV as an Associate Graphic Designer.
While my discipline is primarily in visual/digital design, my interests include ceramics, printmaking, karaoke, watching movies (and video essays about movies), learning (and relearning) programming, and lion dancing. More recently, I've been making slow but steady progress in learning more about fixing bikes, using peer to peer/distributed technologies, and propagating house plants.
I'm interested in the larger project of imagining an Internet that is run by and for people, maintained by principles of care instead of control, and where the tools to build and shape online communities are free, just, and widely accessible. As such, I'm excited that my entry into the tech ecosystem begins with DEV, especially in the midst of its transition towards Forem.
Looking forward to being a part of this community! 😊
