With over 10 years of experience working in digital, I’ve contributed to projects for a variety of Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 brands, including automotive, financial, biotech, and e-commerce. I focus primarily on User Experience Design. Knowing how broad UX is as a field, here are the areas of UX that interest me most.
To design truly customer centric solutions you must haven an understanding of not just the customer, but also all the things happening behind the scenes to service that customer. This holistic approach to design is where I get the most excited.
I have run workshops coaching in design thinking practices and am excited how methodologies can promote new creative workflows within an organization. This is a great place where process and creativity can come together.
Working in Digital many of the interactions we focus on are through web, apps, and mobile devices. In the past few years I have begun to explore more into IoT and voice interactions opening up a lot of exciting opportunities for interaction design.
Conducting stakeholder interviews, man-on-the-street user interviews, Contextual Inquiries, and engaging users in every opportunity.
Determining the usability of an experience and identifying opportunities to remove friction by putting designs in front of real users.
Wether a user journey map or a service design blueprint the goal is to understand and document a holistic experience so all parties can see how decisions made in one area can effect experiences in another.
Getting ideas out of conversations and into a form that people can react to is an important step to take as quickly as possible. Wether whiteboard or clickable prototype or live code prototypes will always get you better feedback than a talking alone.
Once a product is launched is when it becomes alive. This is when we truly get to refine through A/B Testing and optimizing critical user flows. The blend of Analytics, Strategy, and UX is where we can truly add value.
Understanding audience segments and through testing finding opportunities for targeting content can greatly increase conversions, reduce bounces, and present more relevant content.
