I TELL STORIES. I SOLVE PROBLEMS. I MAKE THINGS.

VISUAL DESIGNER (UI).  As a designer, my main focus is creating user interfaces (UI), pattern libraries, UI components, and layouts that are consistent with a brand’s visual design language.

  • Lead, inspire, and collaborate with teams to execute on the creative strategy for projects while focusing on innovation and quality
  • Articulate ideas and communicate with Creative Directors and team to determine visual style, messaging strategy, and conceptual direction
  • Collaborate with UX team, producers, developers, engineers, analytics, and QA to conceive and execute interaction models, information architectures, and design guidelines
  • Understand and work within project parameters such as client goals/requirements/expectations, internal goals, usability, technical constraints, as well as budget and schedule
  • Experiment with new tools, industry trends, and latest techniques to streamline projects and share insights with my team
  • Manage and coach the junior designers including providing art direction/design feedback, daily check-ins on progress/workload and instruction on general best practices for digital design

You’ve done an amazing job of balancing the various teams needs, from thinking strategically to pushing both low-fi and high-fi prototypes for people, customers and team members to react to.

It’s truly been an honor to work along side of you and appreciate your willingness and easy-going approach to drive deep design expertise into our experiments.
