Hi, my name is Janaya Reid

MBA '22 and Co-founder / VP of Product at The Zone

About Me

I design inclusive,
simple, and flexible
solutions.

I have been a UX/UI designer for 6 years. My first interaction with design was love at first sight. Centering another's experience was all too familiar.

As a woman of color, my experience navigating this world rest on my ability to understand the world through the lens of others. Living in a world not designed for you requires an innate creativity to curate your own success.

We are often taught to design for the majority. Through my experience I've learned inclusive design that centers marginalized experiences results in solutions that are intuitive, simple, and truly solve a problem.

A quote I live by "Know Thyself"

Peacefulness

01

I truly value an unshakeable foundation of internal peace that is not reliant on outside factors. For me, peacefulness is synonymous with clarity, which allows for a life that supports appreciating the little things.

Thoughtfulness

02

I am a fan of the little things. Details and subtle nuances excite me. Empathy and awareness come naturally to me, I am a true Taurus.

Creativity

03

I value creativity in all facets of my life. From my Sunday flower arrangements sponsored by Trader Joes, to my non viral Tik-Tok cooking videos. Creating beautiful things and moments is my happy place.

Humor

04

To simply put it, I love to laugh. I always look for the light in any moment.
