Hi, I'm Remy Davison

I'm a senior studying design at Carnegie Mellon University, with a concentration in communication design. I also have extensive experience in writing and front-end development. Currently, I’m working on UX/UI design and design research for LearnSphere, part of CMU's Human-Computer Interaction Institute.

My particular area of interest is design that advances humanitarian causes, social betterment, and facilitates storytelling across divides that are often difficult to navigate. I was the first recipient of the Victor Ng Design Impact Award for my project My Gay Love is Holy: stories from LGBT people of faith. I also worked on UX Design and content production for the CMU Computer Science Academy (a project working towards quality, accessible, and free high school Computer Science education).

I'm also a writer. In addition to working on my own projects, I occasionally contribute freelance content to online publications. I was also a mentor for Boundary Street, a poetry collaboration between CMU's Creative Writing Department and Pittsburgh’s Creative Arts magnet school (CAPA). Beyond that, I'm an active member of Scotch'n'Soda Theatre. I recently directed our February 2019 production of She Kills Monsters, and in the past I’ve worked on publicity, choreography, acting, web design, and costumes.

You can contact me via email or LinkedIn.

(I'm also known as Ren on some platforms.)
