A black and white portrait of Alice Packard

Alice Packard

Designer, | Washington DC

I'm a Design Operations practitioner keen on organizing processes and workflows, and building thoughtful systems. When I have the choice to work fast, I don't. I believe in investing intentionally slow, meticulous work up front so my team and I can work faster later and with more predictability. In my work today that often looks like building and maintaining various kinds templates, tending to a system of interconnected Figma component libraries, and crafting a Coda Doc as a hub for planning, recruiting for, and managing UX research initiatives. I enjoy writing about ways of working in Figma and how to best take advantage of its native features.

I am not taking on new freelance work at the moment, but I’m always down to chat. I love talking about tools, especially Figma and Coda, and learning about Design Operations, and systems thinking. Send me a note if you want to connect.

Beer label artwork

for Red Bear Brewing Company 🍻

DC’s first gay and veteran owned brewery needed beer labels for their fan-favorites. I designed 8 custom-illistrated labels that position the brewery's mascot, Ursula, in scenes that showcase each beer's unique flavor.
