Ayla Newhouse is a Toronto-based designer who’s looking at dating and relationships through the lens of design – and working to solve relationship problems using the tools of design. She tells us how ethnographic research helped land her a boyfriend, and about how she’s helping others tackle their dating woes.

Ayla is holding a pre-Valentine’s mixer here in Toronto on February 9th, and you can also check out her upcoming online workshop on Skillshare. You can find more about Ayla and the project at Dating by Design, where you can also grab a free PDF of Ayla’s dating canvas. Image above by Ayla Newhouse.
