stuff i do
Face to face or remotely I test designs, benchmark systems and talk with users to gain valuable insights.
The simplest way of determining categories, hierarchy, and grouping for superior information architecture.
Paring quantitative information to add un-bias leverage to user behavior and needs.
User centered Design
Ranging from high to low fidelity mockups, experience with multiple prototyping platforms and quick iteration cycles.
Isolating core users with needs and actions to complete complex systems.
The way we interact with what's on our screens is more than pretty buttons and nice images.
Setting the tone for new team members the only way a designer can. By synthesizing and gathering of standards, processes, and important company information in one document that is easy to consume, navigate, and reference.
Recognizing what is great about ourselves and our coworkers while seeking areas for improvement. Culminating in a spoken agreement to work for and with each other based on strengths of the team.
Corporate recommended humor
If we can't laugh about our complex problems we can't find new exciting ways of solving them.
