Randomised lissajous curves

I am a User Experience Development Manager at Shopify working on the Polaris Design System, helping solve common problems at scale. I was the Lead User Experience Engineer on the Australian Government Design System. I worked in a team to align 1000+ websites over 200+ organisations.
