Hello, I'm Aly Blenkin 

Designer, Educator and Maker

I'm currently freelancing with impact organisations through hands-on design and product leadership, and I facilitate trainings with Mind the Product.


Previously I was the Director of Product at Numinus, a company offering psychedelic-assisted therapy, and Head of Digital at Snook, delivering digital public services in the UK.


In 2017, I co-founded and directed Pivotal Act for a number of years, an initiative within VMware (formerly Pivotal Software) to help nonprofits design and build tech. I also worked at Pivotal Labs as a Staff Product Designer and a UX Designer at ThoughtWorks

I have a master's in Transdisciplinary Design from Parsons in New York, a bachelor's in Industrial Design from the University of Alberta, and I studied Service Design at the Köln International School of Design in Germany.

Beyond work, you'll find me wandering outdoors, writing about design, and illustrating a book on cultivating mushrooms 🍄

Let’s work together

Most of my work is under an NDA; please reach out to see my work and portfolio.


I respectfully acknowledge the land on which I work is on the ancestral and unceded homelands of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
