What I Do?
MOBILE APP DESIGN
Wireframes and prototypes for mobile applications, with an iterative process that gives fast turn-arounds and plenty of opportunities for client feedback.
Designs from wireframes to finished site with a focus on Responsive Designs that looks good on every device from mobile to desktop.
In-depth, detail-orientated, designs for complete projects with a focus on simplicity and the experience of the end user.
TUNING AND TESTING
In-product text in English that is clear, concise, and readable on even the smallest screen sizes without scrolling.
Feature implementation, tuning, and testing to create an enjoyable user experience.
Pitches and Sales documentation to help promote your next project.
HiQ | March 2017 - September 2017
Taking a mobile app design from start to finish, my role first involved researching and running design workshops with clients to identify the users of the product and working with them to define the app’s features.
Once defined, I used an iterative process to first map out the screens and interactions with flowcharts, before creating wireframes to handover to an artist to create production art, and building prototypes to demonstrate and refine functionality.
UX DESIGNER (PRAKTIK)
The Farm AB | Aug 2016 - Feb 2017
During my 6 month Praktik I positioned myself between the developers and clients to improve their productivity and the quality of apps they were creating.
This included testing apps already in development and providing design solutions when needed, improving documentation delivered by clients, and making artwork easier to implement with style guides, prototypes, and using Zeplin to ensure developers could recreate designs accurately.
