Hi. I'm Krissie.
Driving Success through Intuitive Design
With over 10 years of design and product experience, I’ve worked on a multitude of projects including graphic, web, app and SaaS design.
Design is a big word. It encompasses such an array of tools and skills, the word “designer” can be very confusing.
My design specialty focuses on blending user advocation and needs with business goals.
Soft Skills are incredibly important when it comes to visual communication. (Key word: communication)
My top 5 CliftonStrengths are:
Visual design is a UX designer's secret weapon, helping us create designs that don't rely too much on written instructions.
Typography, color theory, layout, and icons are our toolkit for crafting interfaces that not only make sense to users but also look pretty darn good!
Design library management is crucial for businesses as it streamlines design processes, saving time and resources. It ensures consistency in visual elements, accelerating workflow, and building a strong brand identity.
Well-managed design libraries also facilitate collaboration among design teams, promoting efficiency and unified brand presence.
Scrum and Agile methodologies are essential for UX designers, offering a flexible framework that allows for iterative development and quick adaptation to changing requirements.
In practicing these methodologies, designers promote collaboration, ensuring close communication among cross-functional teams.
Scrum and Agile empower UX designers to create effective and user-friendly designs through a dynamic and collaborative approach.
Wireframes act as blueprints, outlining the structure and layout of a design in its early stages, defining information architecture and user flow.
Prototyping takes this a step further, providing an interactive simulation of the user experience.
Together, they save time and resources, clarify design structures, and facilitate collaboration among designers, developers, and stakeholders.
Information architecture (IA) is the backbone of creating a user-friendly and intuitive digital experience.
IA involves structuring information logically to enable easy navigation and quick access for users.
It contributes to user efficiency by simplifying complex systems and setting the stage for coherent and user-centric interfaces.
Interaction design is the magic behind intuitive, beautiful interfaces.
When designing apps, I focus on the micro-interactions users experience throughout the application.
