I’m an artist turned designer who strives to make meaningful work that solves problems and provokes thought. I started with a degree in Photography, but I’ve shifted toward interaction design because I love working with people to make their ideas come to life. During the day, I manage a local bike shop in Indianapolis called Circle City Bicycles. Right now that takes up most of my time, but I still have some collaborative projects on the side.

I love hiking in the woods, making homemade challah bread, and hosting pitch-in dinner parties. I should warn you that I’m a professional dabbler, excited to get my hands on anything I haven’t tried before, whether coding in an unfamiliar language, crushing a new board game, or learning to ice skate in my twenties. As a perfectionist, wanting to master every new skill on my first try can be frustrating, but I’m learning how to learn with more humility. I enjoy spontaneous DIY projects, exploring, and deep questions, but most of all I am fulfilled by meeting people, hearing their stories, and connecting them with other people for new adventures. I live in downtown Indy with my husband and our rowdy retriever, Rusty.  Drop me a line at hello@sylvalynn.com.
