About me
Initially, my interest in psychology and design led me to creative advertising where I learned to use strategic thinking to resolve user problems. Now, I want to shift my creativity from interrupting people’s experiences and use UX to enhance them, focusing on life-easing, human-centred design.

    UX/UI DesignerUntangle Grief Support
    London, United KingdomInternship
    I work within a small team of designers and developers to prepare the Untangle app for its launch in May 2020. It is my first experience of working for a tech company with a social benefit. I work in tandem with the senior designer, taking insights and first-hand stories about grief from the company research before implementing them into the UX and visual design of the product. I also work on developing design solutions for the app beyond its launch, coming up with long term design solutions to boost the product’s capability in the future.

    Knowledge Officer | Client Project | 3-week group project My team was tasked with improving the design for ‘Skills Insight’, Knowledge Officer’s new product that uses AI to analyse the user’s LinkedIn profile and provide them with a free skills report to help them understand their skills gap. I managed the team end-to-end, leading the discussion as to what steps within the UX process we should take and which user problems to focus on to improve the product. I also played a crucial part in making design decisions, from my initial rough sketches to then testing and iterating up to high-fidelity.

I played a fundamental role in the discovery phase, putting together a competitor analysis and carrying out user interviews. I consolidated the team’s findings with an affinity map that defined the user problems and the in-flight services we’d put into the app. This led to me sketching and developing the initial paper-prototype and facilitating design decisions from user testing.

During the project, I developed my UI skills on Sketch: creating a style guide, mood board and learning the fundamentals of accessibility and colour.
