Valentine Makhouleen

Hi there!

Valentine Makhouleen

I am Valentine Makhouleen, a Toronto-based design lead specializing in building engaging products and bold brands. My main areas of expertise are interaction design, and application of design to solving complex problems.

Having founded New Media Studio in 2006 and working as a design lead at Meta (acquired by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative), I dedicate my time to projects and people that attempt to make the world a better place. Over the years I have had an opportunity to work with many individual clients, established brands, agencies and grassroots organizations in arts, culture and non-profit industries.

In addition, I am an armchair futurist, an avid traveller, PADI-certified diver, organic gardener and photographer.
