Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, “Make it look good!” That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. - Steve Jobs

Frequently asked questions

Describe your design process and what methods you follow.?

My approach is to collect data using analytics, or testing the design on a specific demographic in a format that makes the most sense. This could include testing wireframes or interactive prototypes on users to either validate or reject hypotheses; or it could be sending a survey to a wider demographic to better understand product market fit.

Walk me through a design example where you set out to solve a business problem.

Initially I like to get a good understanding of what the business problem is that I'm trying to design for. Gathering sufficient amount of data about the problem is crucial in forming a good hypotheses.

Next, I would research the users from the targeted demographic and identify common themes, unmet user needs and where the business may have falled short overall. I would evaluate business goals and identify how to best align them in order to find a solution.

Lastly, I create assets like user personas, user stories, flowcharts, wireframes towards exploring solutions that validate ideas and hypotheses which would be aimed at obtaining a significant business value.

What does it mean to be a great UX designer?

For me, being a great UX designer means that I can balance business goals and technical constrains with creating the best user experience possible. Having access to vital user behavioral data such as surveys, a/b testing, and analytics allows me analyze responses in order to make further improvements.
