I'm Amelia Roblin,
a Multidisciplinary Designer.
This is some of my work
This is what I do
I type over 80 words per minute, which came in handy as a former freelance writer. My speed is only slightly less when I'm coding.
In architecture school, I first learned to draft by hand. I now predominantly draft digitally, with training in vectoring software like AutoCAD.
I make things! I enjoy everything from sketching, oil painting and video editing, to tailoring custom clothing and fusing glass into art.
I illustrate. My strokes transition seamlessly between my pencil, my Sharpie, my calligraphy nib and my digital stylus and drawing tablet.
This is who I am
I am a multidisciplinary designer with a breadth of experience in graphic design, web development and UX. Professionally, my projects principally include layout design, web design, event design and web tool development. I work as the VP of Brand and Design at a research firm and media company in Toronto.
In 2010, I completed my HBA at the University of Toronto in Architectural Design and Fine Art History. My third year took me on exchange to the Australian National University in Canberra, followed by RMIT University in Melbourne for intermediate courses in AutoCAD to fine-tune my digital drafting. In 2014, I obtained a certificate from Humber College for its Graphic Design for Print and Web program. Since then, I've taken courses and received certification in UX and UI design and research. For me, learning and creating are lifelong passions.
I have always loved design, and my second love is travel. I get great inspiration and energy from visiting new places, immersing myself in different cultures and exploring the unique features of cities, towns and landscapes around the world. Travel broadens my mental and emotional scope and significantly influences how I observe and how I work as a designer. From Australia and New Zealand, to Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa, I've visited 50 countries, occasionally traveling with friends and family, as well as embarking on adventures solo.
