Slipper Studios is led by Eva Kaniasty, who acts as principal consultant on most projects, working in a collaborative manner with agencies, internal teams, and/or other trusted consultants. She’s worked in a range of industries, including healthcare, education, and high tech, but what she truly cares about is making technology easier for people to use regardless of subject domain.

Triangulation is one of Eva’s favorite words, which explains how she combined 3 unrelated interests – psychology, technology, and giving advice – into a career in user experience. Her current interests include visualizing research results, coaching & training, and accomplishing the impossible.
Eva currently serves as Chair for the User Centered Design online Master’s Program.

Eva is a graduate of the Bentley HFID Master’s program, and remains closely involved with the Bentley UX community through mentoring, and through her connection as a previous employee at the Bentley User Experience Center.
