As a User Experience designer, my main goal is to transform the needs and requirements of users and stakeholders into intranets, websites or mobile applications that look and feel great to use.
Currently working as User Experience designer at Australia’s leading residential property website realestate.com.au.
When it comes to wireframing interactive prototypes in a fast-paced project environment, there's no way around me and Axure RP. It's the best tool to make requirements visible and tangible very quickly. In addition to that, my concepts can be tested and verified with real users - before implementation starts.
Analysing user behaviour - especially in the field in the form of contextual enquiries - is always an eye-opener. Gathering insights that then inform the client’s strategy is part of my repertoire. In the end, bringing together user and business needs is what makes every project an interesting challenge. I frequently conduct interviews, organise online surveys, analyse secondary research or even ride shotgun to be in the field to confirm/disprove my research hypotheses - and get useful inputs for my projects.
Whether it’s analysing an existing navigation and optimising it with the help of analytics and expertise, or building a new IA completely from scratch, I’m definitely up for it. Since I’m mainly working on replatform projects (with a lot of content), it’s usually the latter. My large mindmaps are then used to inform navigation, wireframing and all further phases of the project.
There’s not really a way around getting real users explore a prototype to see if your thinking is really delivering a solution that is easy to use and addresses the user needs and expectations. Depending on project budget, there should always be room to conduct at least a remote usability test to verify a prototype or an online card sort to challenge a new navigation. If time and money allow it, I’m happy to plan, conduct and analyse lab usability tests.
Static (or dynamic) wireframes as tangible artefacts for user requirements.
Context-driven design focusing on small(er) screens with limited real estate.
Highly functional, interactive wireframes for large, tablet or mobile viewpoints.
