About Me

poppy-breaks

I’m a UX Designer with an interest in most things that developed while growing up in the wilds of Indiana far from most interesting things.

CRITICAL MISSION #1: Save the user (and clients) from headaches and create delightful and useful experiences.

I love the magic of code, design, typography, and colorful and shiny things in general. Learning is a never-ending process that keeps me motivated and passionate about skillsharing and mentoring.

At work, I aim to simplify the complex making dense structures clear through the UI and page flows, validating decisions through research. Collaboration is a must as great things are never achieved alone.

When I’m not designing, strategizing, or whatnot, I strategically plan and market festivals and performances for flow, fire, and circus artists through the Flow Arts Institute and FlowMotion Events. I practice aerial silks and spinning things weekly with Aerialogy and The Hudsucker Posse.

Things I do

poppy-breaks

Personas

I study the business, market, and users to represent target users of varying degrees.

Page Flows

More robust than a site map, I outline how people move through a site.

Information
Architecture

From a full content inventory or a structuring a brand new site, information architecture is presented in site structure and hierarchy on the page.

Wireframes

I can outline the skeleton of the product from lo-fi to high-fi and everything in between.

Visual Design

I can make pretty things that serve purpose.

The Codes

I do the front end codes (html, css, js, jquery, php), best used for prototyping and tweaking, but I know how things work.

My Process

DIG DEEP

Pragmatism and storytelling are at the core of my process.  The process goes something like: Ask Questions. Evaluate. Test. Design. Test. Redesign. Test. Build. Test. Redesign. Test….

The main questions I ask are:

Who is this serving?

What is it supposed to do?

Why does it exist?

What are your expectations?

What system(s) does this operate in?
