Nikki Sylianteng

Hello! I'm a public service product designer based in Brooklyn, New York.

You might know me from my parking sign redesign project where I saved drivers around the world from getting a parking ticket. I currently work at Mark43 as a senior product designer designing software for first responders and investigators. In 2021, I served with the United States Digital Response as an NYC[x] Innovation Fellow where I worked with the FDNY Robotics Unit on a pilot project for blood delivery by drone.

💭 Current thoughts
The first chapter of my career was about discovering design -- first in the world of interior architecture and then interaction design. The second chapter was about applying myself -- bringing design to spaces that needed it; I made a lot of impact and changed the world for the better but I also started to feel my limits. This brings me to my third chapter which is back to learning -- getting better at the craft. My ultimate goal is to bring the best design and technology to spaces that need it.
