UX Design

Recently I graduated from UX Academy where I learned user experience design. During my time there I spent 40+ hours a week developing a user centered design process . From research, to creating sitemaps, to prototyping and usability testing I have learned how to craft products and experiences based off of user and business needs supported by data and insight. 

This rough framework outlines my process for designing digital experiences:

  1. Plan of attack for the design challenge
  2. Research and gather data about the users/business/product
  3. Empathize with the users/business/product through:
  • User Personas
  • Empathy Map
  • Storyboards
  • User/Business Goals Diagram

       4. Conceptualize and Create a solution by creating deliverables like:

  • Sitemap
  • User flow
  • Wireframes & Prototype

       5. Test

  • Usability test plan
  • Usability test using multiple disciplines

        6. Iteration

Communicating the importance of this user-centered design strategy is present throughout the entire process.

Design opened my eyes and gave me power I didn't know I had 6 months ago. I do not see design as a career path, but instead as a lifestyle. I am beyond eager to dive into the world of design and I'm excited to see what the future holds.
