Yep, I interviewed myself, so you can get to know me.
01. What is your name?
02. Where are you currently located?
03. What is your job title?
UX Designer and Researcher
04. What is UX Design and why do you do it?
UX Design is human-centered design in the user’s perspective. In short, it is designing a better experience for the user of a product or service.
UX Design is creating nothing out of something.
I believe the best kind of interface is one without. I do what I do because I love the process of actively seeking unnoticeable design solutions.
05. What skills do you have related to your work?
Storyboarding, persona research, building and conducting interviews and surveys, user journey mapping, Lo-Fi to Hi-Fi wireframing, prototyping, and usability testing.
06. What kinds of software tools do you use?
Well, it depends.
For wireframing, I’m most proficient with Sketch, but I do prefer sketching wireframes on paper initially.
For prototyping, I like using InVision to present to clients, but I like using Principle for testing complex interactions.
For general designing tools, I am familiar with Adobe programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
I am also able to create simple designs on the web using HTML5 and CSS3.
07. Do you do any volunteering?
Yes! I am currently volunteering at Creative Pulse as a Marketing Manager, and previously a Copywriter, but would like to take on a role in podcast interviewing and planning.
08. What do you like doing when you're not working?
On my own, you’ll probably find me reading about design, listening to design podcasts, gaming, or riding my bike. I play hoops every week and try to attend a design workshop once in a while.
09. What books are you reading?
Thanks for the Feedback, Quantifying User Research, Don’t Make Me Think, Handbook of Usability Testing
Recently finished: The Design of Everyday Things
