I’m Amanda Cilek, a product designer based in Portland, OR. I am passionate about design for social good and enjoy transforming my creative energy into meaningful user experiences.
Currently I am a Principal User Experience Designer with Autodesk’s Education team focusing on empowering the next generation of students in 3D design and STEM. Previously, I honed my skills at a number of tech startups including the nonprofit Medic Mobile, where I helped build tools for healthcare workers in remote communities. I design because I feel compelled to make a difference and because I believe good, thoughtful design can be the perfect catalyst for change.
When I'm not working, you'll find me hiking the beautiful Pacific Northwest, baking experimental vegan treats, and engaging in all sorts of creative pursuits including hand-made printmaking and ceramics.
