What I do

I provide the overall interaction design vision through sketches, flows, prototypes, UI kits, research, and design specs.

Evaluate – I like to start by understanding who I am designing for and what I am trying to solve for. Whether it is an interview, site visit, or reviewing past research and support calls. Before I begin to ideate on the sketch pad, it is essential for me to identify the audience, their needs, environments and challenges.

Ideation – With the targeted audience in mind the next step for me is to sketch out a few ideas based off scenarios in the context of the user narrative/journey. This can be accomplished as a design session with key stakeholders or an individual task depending on scale.

Validate – Design Solutions at times I find can be simplified even more, I like to follow up with a design walkthrough of the prototype solution with developers and make adjustments before sharing. It is essential to make sure the designs are the right solution for the customers by doing the home work with a clickable prototype and review.

Deliver – After the final prototype and designs are completed and validated the next item is delivering clear and concise documentation that can be utilized for implementation, marketing, sales and support. I consider it my responsibility to be available to assist with questions during the implementation phase and to finalize the product delivery with a QA review and stakeholder approval before going public.

Throughout - For overall best results I find it important to share and collaborate with all stakeholders. Everyone has a skillset and knowledgebase they can bring to the table.

Client: Sage

Project: Sage Pegg Chatbot

Customers simply add Pegg inside Slack or Facebook Messenger (or use it inside the existing Sage software) and then ask it questions in natural conversation. They could ask ‘who owes me money?’ or ‘how much did I spend on coffee in April’ or ‘what did I earn last month?’ and Pegg will deliver the answers in real time and without jargon.

The Challenges: Pegg will need a facelift to match the new DLS system

The Solutions: Design Workshop with internal XD, Usability Testing with Sage Customers, Sharing research findings with key stakeholders.
