Design Process

View Detailed Process
Plan

Hey! What's the big idea? Before jumping into design, I need to know the objective & requirements. Brainstorming, mind mapping, and user research will help me ideate.

Create

Designing is about experimenting and learning from mistakes. I can bring an idea to life, first with sketches to conceptualize & then I take to my design tools for details.

Launch

3, 2, 1... Lift off! I love it when I see creations take off, but the process doesn't stop there. I take notes on product and design process improvements for the next hurdle.

Showcased Work: Slides from my Presentation on Web Development for UX Designers

In June 2012, I was a guest speaker for a UW Human-Centered Design & Engineering graduate class.

As a web developer/UX designer hybrid, I highly enjoy making connections between development and design. Sometimes there can be a huge disconnect within a team due to different mindsets, and I always strive to fill in those gaps and work on both ends to help create amazing products. I shared with the students why, as UX designers, should understand some web development. 1) You will collaborate more effectively with developers. 2) You will understand technical constraints (think tables, and why they're "bad"). 3) You can do it yourself!
