Meet Mia Frasca
Role: UX Designer
Time at Fuzzy Math: ~1.5 years
Q: What item don’t you leave home without?
A: A book. I always need to have a purse that’s big enough to fit a book.
Q: What project(s) are you currently working on?
A: I’m working on a large strategy project, so my day-to-day has mostly been trying to pull insights out of a lot of different kinds of information, and a lot of collaborating closely with Carl (shoutout to Carl!) to try to understand what kind of value we can bring to our client.
Q: What three words would you use to describe your role at Fuzzy Math?
A: Empathy, Create, Collaborate
Q: What was the last book you read?
A: I’m reading this book that I really like right now called What About the Rest of Your Life by Sung Yim. It’s a very personal story told very poetically, and it’s been a really great read so far.
Q: If you could switch jobs with anyone, who would it be?
A: I would love to own my own bed and breakfast.
Meet Philip Miller
Role: UX Designer
Time at Fuzzy Math: ~2 years
Q: Estimate how many windows are in New York City.
A: Let’s see — with 150 streets that run north-south, 50 that run east-west, and 90,000 stories, with 50 windows per story, I’d say 4.5 million.
Q: How does Fuzzy Math stand out amongst other UX design agencies?
A: We do a really good job of understanding the needs of our client’s users and are comfortable and confident when we challenge our client on what they want. At the same time, we’re also flexible enough in how we deliver in a way that other agencies might not be.
Q: What’s currently on rotation for you?
A: Hozier, Robyn, and Betty Who.
Q: What’s your favorite Slack channel?
A: Oooo great question. Can I pick two? I like #fm-yard because it gives a glimpse into the random things that the rest of the office is interested in (and because we devolve into really fun, ridiculous conversations pretty often), and I like #fm-winning because our team rarely brags about their own work and it’s nice having somewhere for everyone’s achievements to be celebrated.
Q: If you were to get rid of one state in the U.S., which would it be and why?
A: What do you mean by “get rid of”? If I could “let go” of Hawaii then I would, because we should have never brought them in to begin with. If I could “eliminate” a state, then I’d go with North Dakota because I’m not totally convinced it’s a real place and I haven’t met anyone that’s from there.
