Oh boy. I’m so excited to be here. I’ve been looking for a community to join that will help me grow my skills and get to know some other cool designers and I’m excited to see what the future holds on this lil platform. Now let’s fill out this info sheet!
Where in the world are you?
I’m currently on the west coast! Seattle, WA, USA. Super pretty, lots of good tech, but also cold. So cold. I lived my whole life in Houston until moving here in 2016 and still haven’t adjusted.
What stage of your career are you at?
Very early. Like so early. I got into product design as a potential career path maybe two weeks ago and have collectively done ~8hours of work on UI/UX stuff between my two other jobs.
What are you current challenges?
Is all of them an option? Just kidding! I’m really happy with what I’ve accomplished so far. I went from not knowing anything about UI/UX stuff to making self-taught app mockups on Figma. I’m currently just trying to get feedback from people on what I’ve done so far (and possible future pieces) which not only would help my skills as a designer grow but also help others with their feedback skills. Everyone wins!
What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?
I’m interested in product design (specifically like apps) because of the aspect of being able to solve problems and create a more pleasant experience for users. Maybe it’s my retail mgmt background or maybe it’s being a Capricorn, but I love that analytical aspect of it. I’ve got a long way to go and a lot to learn still, but I’m excited to get to that point. If I can make things easier or more helpful for just one user, I’ll be happy.
Cats or dogs?
Both! I love all animals. I’m a vegan and just wanna hug every animal. Well maybe not spiders… or scorpions… But they’re cute too in their own way I guess.
Well that’s some info on me, can’t wait to get to dig into this community and see what everyone’s up to. I can already tell it’ll be a great resource and I’m excited to see what we can accomplish working together.
