I work with business stakeholders and analysts to establish web application requirements and goals, taking into consideration existing business infrastructure, capabilities and emerging technologies.
By creating UI architecture to define structure, interaction models, visual design specs and wireframes to define key concepts and functionality , I gain validation and approval with stakeholders, then progress to developing interactive proof of concepts that can then be tested with potential customers in market experiments.
Seeing a design in action is the best way to gain business support or investment, as required I also create hi-fidelity mock-ups, user interface designs and interactive HTML prototypes, or at any stage hand these over to dedicated specialists.
Mock-ups are designed according to existing style guides to seamlessly fit into or beside the current look and feel, unless new or unique design is required.
Detailed visual interfaces are designed based off the Wire-frames or Lo-fidelity concepts created during the UX and Interaction design process, alternatively I also support teams requiring additional interface design for existing Websites & Web Applications.
Having focused on front end development for many years creating interactive experiences with many companies, I’ve solved 100’s of unique front end dev challenges. I can turn any design into responsive, cross platform and browser applications that work across desktop, tablets and smartphones.
I have demonstrated commitment to service, processes and quality with a keen eye for modern web design, development trends and a strong focus on SEO best practices and structures.
Working closely with marketing teams, product engineering teams, programmers, testers and technical leads and as part of fast paced Agile/Scrum teams I deliver clean, well-formed and lightweight HTML/5 and CSS/3, SASS/ LESS and jquery.
I have experience with many website frameworks and content management systems (CMSs) including template and prototype development.
This knowledge also provides great benefits when designing user interfaces and experiences, allowing me to foresee many restrictions and challenges and provide scalable solutions to solve them.
There are several different approaches to discovering a project's requirements and this all depends on the business, the project, timeline and budget.
Much of this can also be an iterative, ongoing process for continual improvement and awareness for an evolving audience, environment and technology.
Concepts start with a simple sketch to get down the basics then progress to a low fidelity wireframes and hi.
Any one of these steps can be reviewed by stakeholders but most often at the low-fi wireframe stage.
The conceptual stages are supported with:
