the many tiny worlds of sarah gould
Hi! My name is Sarah Gould, and I’m a designer of many things. I mostly make games, websites, interactive art, digital worlds, and user interfaces. I also doodle incessantly. My other interests include social linguistics, programming languages, urban design, architecture, intersectional feminism, herbal tea, and vegan sweets. I’m always super enthusiastic to learn new things. In the wake of all my learning and exploring, I leave behind these myriad spaces and artifacts that I hope spark creativity, wonder, and joy.
