Tricia Okin, ux designer for web and mobile
papercut is Tricia Okin (me), a designer with 11 years experience designing for web, mobile print and pretty much everything floating in between. I work with developers, copywriters, and all-round makers of good things to realize amazing projects.
I’ve been working in Brooklyn since 2001 and founded papercut in 2004. papercut was resurrected in early 2009 after realizing I wanted to make good work with tangibility & purpose. I also realized I would rather not do it alone in a design vacuum. So, whenever a project is a right fit, I bring in other folks to help out but primarily enjoy working with existing teams to help them reach the finish line.
