USER RESEARCH, STRATEGY &

EXPERIENCE DESIGN SPECIALIST

ABOUT ME

I’m a user experience specialist and visual

designer.

I help companies create

experiences that solve problems.

To achieve this I have a strict focus on

research and prototyping to help inform and

guide the design & development process.

I am an expert communicator, problem spotter

and creative thinker.

I love helping teams create great digital

experiences and teaching people how to think

like a designer.

RESEARCH

I believe that every great

product starts with a great

story. Research helps us

understand the story of our

user and this reveals

problems they have and key

opportunities.

STRATEGY DESIGN

MY AREAS OF FOCUS

Once I understand the user

and their motivations I love

the process of identifying

what product solution will

solve their problems and

creating the overall timeline

for the project.

Looking at the experience as

a whole is my strength,

becuase great expereiences

extend beyond the screen. I

am experienced in sketching,

wireframing, prototyping,

and design thinking.

05: PROTOTYPE

INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES RESPONSIVE DESIGN

Competitor sites are built statically

with HTML and little CSS. Small design

tweaks encourage users to interact

and learn more while doing so.

I determined that the ideal customer is

someone interacting on their cell

phone and wanted to make sure the

mobile design functioned as well as the

desktop version.

Competitor research helped identify key

design improvements that would increase

customer time on page.

LESSONS

This was a really easy and quick

market this business and grow it’s

footprint. Focusing on creating

content to educate the consumer.

Defining goals and users early in the

process allowed us to design with a

plan and complete the project before

the deadline.
