About me
I started with fine arts but quickly realized a bigger appreciation for user centered design and visual communication. This eventually morphed into a passion for app and website design, the pinnacle of user centered design. This lead me to graduate with a Bachelors of arts in Visual Communication, passing with distinction. I have also gained 2 years experience in digital design working for a mobile software development company based in Cape Town. Before that I freelanced for a year as a graphic designer. Design fields I'm best at: Illustration, brand design and user interface design. Software I can use: Sketch, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Zeplin, Slack, & InVision

    I was approached by HealthyHealth to complete their UI designs. Their UX along with a bunch of their UI screens were already complete. This was a great opportunity for me to take over a project with such a beautiful pre-defined visual style. I focused most my time on: 1. Zeplin setup - I made sure all text styles, icons and colours were defined in Sketch so that the developers had everything they needed in Zeplin. I also organise the screens in Zeplin to make communication easy between developers, project managers and any future designers. 2. User Interface Design - I collaborated closely with the product designer to finish off the remaining screens and to make sure the design language was consistent throughout all screens. I refined the styles, checking that the Sketch file was neat and that the UI followed the style guidelines. 3. Developer support - In order to make sure development went as quickly as possible, I addressed developer queries. Making sure all icons were exportable and that we weren’t missing any screens. I made the suggested amends on certain screens to help reach deadlines.
