Crafting a good product experience is like telling a good story. It’s about more than just what’s on the screen. It’s about more than just "feeling" right. Great experience design takes into account all of the touch-points one has with a product or service. So, we have to pay attention to the details but without loosing sight of the beauty and power of the entire narrative. In working together, we can create soulful design solutions that tell your story through the execution of holistic, thoughtful design practices.
Product Design - UX & UI
Guiding both the user experience and visual design for diverse clients at happy, product focused companies is what I love best. With many years experience working from concept to buildout, I'm comfortable within the full spectrum of the product design process. This may look like user research, wireframing, prototyping, high fidelity visual designs, or pair design with engineering teams. Whatever you may need, we can create, design and build together. And then there's the strategy, of course. To create powerful, sticky user experiences, it begins with a global vision and a holistic strategy -- keep reading to learn more.
Working together we'll co-create a design + business strategy that can address your company's core questions and aim to solve key problems with thoughtful and tailored design execution. This may look like creative direction for an entire line of online services, digital or physical offerings, content planning, information architecture, branding or branded materials, or language, look & feel. Already have a vision but need a expert eye and valued opinion? you might consider a design audit -- keep reading to learn more.
Think of design audits as a thorough review of the current state of your product or service offerings or a review of your organization's design strategy. Audits help to illuminate the current systems, identify areas of improvement and simplify actionable items, wherever they may be. This may look as large as conducting an internal audit where we interview, create documentation and generate a roadmap or it may look as small as a request for feedback on product prioritization, user flows, a user interview protocol or design comps.
In-person Design Workshops
While we can do great work remotely, sometimes nothing beats getting together in person. As a part-time educator, I strive to help promote the importance of design and that often takes shape as sharing my experiences with others, in-person. Through design workshops and lectures or coaching and mentorship, I'm available for one-on-one (or one-to-many) in-person sessions. This may look like presenting a UX training in-house, facilitating a co-creation workshop or hosting a general speaking engagement.
