Your next problem solver.

Thanks for stopping by - I'm Vonne Aguda. My past lives as a jazz musician and graphic designer help me weave enchanting narratives into my solutions. Digging into problems, crafting empathetic design solutions, connecting with clients, and applying feedback fuels me. Well, that and way too much diet soda.

When I'm not designing products, catch me sharpening my skills in hackathons, creating graphic designs for clients and for fun, playing and teaching music around Toronto,  leveling up on FFXIV and Genshin Impact, or digesting all forms of comedy. I'd love to work with you!
