Employers

  • OomphHQ
    Visual UI, UX and Interactive Designer
    2011 - Present

    Reporting to the design director, my role as senior designer requires me to manage clients, direct interns and freelancers, stand in for the Director in their absence and direct projects from concept development through to final production. The practical skills involved in this role include user-research, sketching, wireframe mock-ups, usability testing, Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, AfterEffects, and working with .css and .html. Leading training workshops requires the clear explanation of the Oomph language, UX design principles and the best practices of digital content production. In Providing technical support to clients I demonstrate my ability to explain clearly and think quickly, often having to solve creative problems on the spot.
