I have experience working with small startups to large corporations on both the product and development side. I'm comfortable working in an agile environment with a team or as the sole designer. I've designed projects for web, mobile and large scale touch screen devices.
I have experience with the entire design process from inceptive strategy to final design. During an average project life cycle I’ve conducted: stakeholder interviews, SWOT analysis, requirements gathering, project brief creation, product roadmaps, user research (primary and secondary), persona creation, mental models, card sorting sessions. Information architecture experience consists of process/task diagrams, user flows, detailed specifications and eventually wireframes. Once we have a foundation for the product I provide detailed designs, working prototypes and style/pattern guides. Throughout this process we are constantly iterating and getting feedback from key stakeholders and team members to further refine the product. After product launch we do retrospectives and conduct usability testing.
