Some common questions about who I am and what I do.
Q: What do you do?
A: User experience (UX) design. Titles have included Interaction Designer, Experience Architect, User Experience Architect, Information Architect... they're all labels for the same thing – a person who designs awesome digital experiences, mainly websites and apps. I do this by gathering information about the product I'm going to design, its owner's goals, its users' goals, and market data, then I use those insights to design wireframes (blueprints, basically) for the product, and team up with a graphic designer to bring color and life to them. Some of the ways I gather information are: competitive, comparative, and heuristic evaluations of other products, stakeholder interviews, web analytics, and user research – like prototypes, sorting exercises, testing, and focus groups.
