Hey! Hi! Hello!
I’m Robyn Kanner.

I’m a Senior Product Designer at Etsy in Brooklyn, NY.  I used to be an Art Director at Amazon in Seattle, WA.

I’m also a co-founder and designer for MyTransHealth which is a resource dedicated to helping trans and non-binary people find access to quality healthcare. At the moment, we’re in six locations across the United States and in May ’17 we will be in twenty. You can read a little bit more about us in The Verge, Business Insider, and Upworthy or watch me give a keynote on it.

In addition, I have worked with the Obama administration to run a Queer in Tech panel at The White House to help them design more inclusive products for people across the country. I also spoke at DesignWeekPDX on how designers need to show up.

I have also written for publications like Bustle and Mic, created the Let Trans Women Live campaign, spoke at Etsy, and guest lectured at Cooper Union and SVA. And if podcasts are your thing, hear me on ShopTalkWorking File, MTVLet’s Make Mistakes, and Design EDU Today.

I grew up, went to school, and learned how to be an adult in various pocket-sized towns in Maine. After a few years in the music industry designing albums and managing bands I worked as a brand designer for Staples and New Balance in Boston.

In my free time I like to play guitar, hang out with my dog, Arrow, and tweet about my feelings. If you want to chat, drop me a line at robyn.kanner@gmail.com or connect with me on LinkedIn.
