Susie Grace


UI/UX Designer

What’s your average day like at Oneupweb?

I’m pretty new, so I still do a lot of listening and absorbing. I’m currently doing a lot of graphic design work but will be moving into more testing, CRO [conversion rate optimization] and UX [user experience].

So, currently I push pixels, ask questions and look at user data.

Tell us about a favorite Oneupweb moment.

I have more of a favorite thing about Oneupweb: how funny everyone is. We laugh a lot here, and it’s been a really welcome thing to me.

What’s your favorite blog, and why?

I love mindbodygreen – short articles about healthy living and wellness.

What makes Traverse City appealing?

  1. It’s beautiful here.
  2. The water/Lake Michigan/Frankfort and the water community.
  3. I love how the community supports local business and farms here.

What do you really do at Oneupweb?

Get stoked about numbers.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

I love to move; if that means out on the water paddling, playing tennis, soccer, hiking with my dog or walking anywhere, I love it!

I’m also a tinkerer; I like to learn how to make things and create.

Years from now, what will stick out most about 2019?

A lot of things are happening this year: getting married, started my job here at Oneupweb and I launched a natural skincare side business – and that’s only half the year!

It’s 5:30 p.m. – what’s your cocktail of choice?

Red wine, sour beer or sparkling wine, depending on my mood.

What’s the last song you intentionally listened to?

“Just a Little Bit” by Paula Fuga. I love music that has a positive message. 

What do you carry in your purse?

Well, I actually have a love/hate thing about purses. I can’t stand carrying them, but I see the use at times – especially when I can’t find my wallet. I always have doggy bags on me, a hair tie and if I’m on my game – a bobby pin.

What’s your secret guilty pleasure?

Cookies … a lot of cookies.

Favorite book/movie/album/TV show/etc.?

Books: “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” by Milan Kundera

                “Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended on It” by Christopher Voss

                “The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle” by Steven Pressfield

Album: Calexico’s Feast of Wire

Tell us something weird/unique/quirky about yourself.

I have never owned a TV. Yea, I’m one of thooose people.  🙂

What’s one of life’s simple pleasures?

Watching birds fly, sunsets, catching waves and laughing with people. Wait, that’s four …

The internet is listening: Give us some words to live by.

Life is precious.
