Discovery & Research

Identify the project/product's objective & scope; conduct user interviews to establish target users & personas, conduct market research on competitors and industry leaders, set benchmarks of goals throughout the user flow.

User Experience

Applying Human Centered Design principle to create a clean and intuitive user flow streamlined for current UX standards and usability. High-level/low-fidelity flow diagrams, wireframes and paper prototypes are all part of my process to refine the user flow before the low-level/high-fidelity visual design process begins.

Visual/Interface Design

Design a clean and beautiful user interface to put a "face" on wireframes respectively for web and native mobile environments, then create prototypes and conduct user testing to refine the UI before implementation. Once design is finalized, use Zeplin to create a technical Style Guide for seamless collaboration with developers during the implementation process.
