Welcome

T-shaped set of skills

I am a well-rounded UX professional with a T-shaped skill set of all matters of user-focused design: with an understanding of a wide range of UX disciplines (e.g., user interface development, front-end development, IoT, content strategy), and in-depth knowledge of the areas below:

  • UX research (both generative and evaluative)
    • contextual inquiry
    • remote and in-person usability testing
    • in-depth interviews
    • surveys
    • sequential and hierarchical card sorting
  • interaction design
  • information architecture
    • wireframes
    • taxonomies

I am both creative and analytical, with a strong background in qualitative and quantitative data analysis. I am passionate about making processes and interfaces relevant to the user in context (sometimes you want to slow your user down so that they avoid making a bad decision).

I have worked for small businesses, artists, Fortune500 companies, banks, digital agencies and educational institutions. My experience includes working on mobile, ATM, and web, and in-person interaction design.

What you can find on this website: I highly respect my clients and would not want to share work protected by non-disclosure agreements, so the samples I can display are from my volunteer projects and “abstractions” of paid work. You can find samples of my current and older projects on this website. Should you want to see more artifacts, I am happy to share them with you in person and walk you through my work process and my design decisions.

I get excited about interesting assignments and always ready to grab coffee and chat. Feel free to reach out to me at akiss2115@gmail.com.
