Hello

I’m a designer with a background in enterprise product design with a love for design systems and accessibility.

I recently built and deployed the largest update to the Clarity Design System in its 15 year history. I also helped develop accessibility recommendations for the FIDO alliance.

In the past I was Principal Product Designer for Financials at Workday Before that, I worked at DesignMap and can’t say enough about those lovely people.

I’ve worked in visual design, web design, ux design, and occasionally user research. I’ve run workshops, been embedded with scrum teams, and wrote code (badly). I was once really good at writing html for emails.

For my portfolio please contact me at patrick (at) patrick leahy design dot com or via LinkedIn.

Other things:
I wrote my first Medium post. It’s about dealing with pain.
I shared a story about defeat being snatched from the jaws of victory (sort of) at EUX2018.
I wrote a blog post about how I manage my time, which I take very seriously.
A long time ago I helped Bike Saviours¬†get off the ground. I’m incredibly proud of it.

Right now I’m probably hanging out with my family, digging in the garden, or restoring habitat with the Friends of Sausal Creek.
