Poorly designed experiences are everywhere. I have encountered countless examples of bad design in my life, from ugly websites, unprofessional logos, horrid forms, to real-world monsters such as doors that don’t clearly indicate if they should be pushed or pulled, impossible gas station credit card interfaces, and mind-numbingly complex processes to do simple things like get a drivers license. Design is not about making pretty things. Design solves problems. My professional goal is to solve as many problems as I can using smart thinking, research, and design. Bad design negatively affects people, and people are at the core of all design problems. I believe the world needs more Intentional Design.
Ok, so I'm not that magical, as my dope illustration skillz can attest. Le sigh.
Not really. Unicorn implies some mythical creature that doesn't really exist. There are plenty of folks like me, people who entered the interactive field before fancy UX and HCI degrees were common. I am a UX generalist, with skills ranging from strategy, analysis, information architecture, user tasks flows, writing functional specs, creating wireframes, all the way to making high-fidelity interface designs, usability testing, and just for kicks, I can build my designs too using hand-written HTML and CSS. Add in project and product management, copy writing, and training skills, along with over 8 years of leading web development and design teams, and you start to get a more complete picture of what I bring to the table.
