About Mimi

Hi there! My name is Mimi Newman. I’m a product designer who loves to bring a marketing & business background to the table to design and launch beautiful, intuitive, usable, and profitable digital experiences.

From 2019-2021, was the lead product designer and market strategist on the CHANI app, a top-rated astrology & mindfulness app available on iOS. Now, I’m a freelance product/UX & UI designer and love to work on consumer tech products – mobile, desktop, and tablet software alike. I know a lot about developing and bringing products to market from my work with Microsoft, Shopify, and VC-backed startups, and offer GTM counsel beyond just pixels and wireframes.

I also cook, develop recipes, and offer food & lifestyle photography services. I’ve been an avid home cook since forever. I grew up in a family of cooks – my grandmother’s family was one of the original butchers at the Farmer’s Market in LA, and I was always the sous-chef in my dad’s kitchen as a kid. I learned a lot from watching the Food Network on TV, being an adventurous eater, reading cookbooks, and learning from my mistakes in the kitchen. Having lived in Seattle and New York City in the past 10 years, and traveling as much as I can, also informs my point of view.
