As a UX Designer, I have a diverse skill set that includes research methods, design software, prototyping apps and analytic tools. I feel confident in the skills that I currently have, but I am also eager to learn, refine and add to these skills. In terms of software, I spend a lot of my time using Sketch, Photoshop, inDesign and Atom.
Adobe Creative Suite
I have experience using Adobe programs, predominantly Illustrator, Photoshop and inDesign, and have some experience using XD and Dreamweaver.
Competent in HTML & CSS
On my UX Diploma, I was taught how to create recruitment screeners, write scripts and deliver usability test sessions. I deliverd four test sessions and gained some great insights.
In my current job, I have successfully lead workshops and card sorting exercises to help identify opportunities, create focus and provide direction to some of the projects I have been working on.
I am empathetic
As a designer, it is imperative to try to see things from the user’s perspective. As a person, I think there is a lot to be gained from understanding others better.
I love learning
Whether it be through reading philosophical or scientific literature, taking online courses or having dance lessons, I’m always learning something.
Beauty makes me happy
I love well designed things–buildings, furniture, clothes and objects. I feel happier and more inspired when surrounded by these things.
I take criticism well
On my music degree, I was exposed to some pretty brutal criticism. I am very grateful for this experience now because it taught me not to take things personally.
He’s a great guy. Very creative with a natural flair for clean and minimal design. Since working with Dan, I’ve seen him grow and improve his skills, so I am confident he will be successful at whatever he turns his hand to. As a person he is easy to work with, honest and great to have around. He always listens and keeps the client at the heart of what he produces.
