Along with working a bit of freelance web design, I also work in the Digital Marketing department at Clayton Homes where we head most web related projects, from the official website to email templates to extra web content and more.
I have studied user testing and user experience design. I am capable of creating a survey based study, conducting user testing, analyzing results, creating wireframes based on user experience, etc.
I can use knowledge of layout and design, coupled with user experience information or wireframes, to create a mockup design or prototype in an appropriate theme.
I have been a lead for most of my group based projects in school. I love organization and keeping up with each member. I am also able to pick up extra work if a member is behind.
I am responsible for developing and implementing digital content for public websites.
I worked with the design team to add in floorplans to an in house application used to preview what different home design choices look like. Along with working with the programming team to make sure that naming conventions and consistency are used, I also talk with a third party agency who helps provide the items needed for the application. I also work with a few different 3D programs to create visualizations of the floorplans.
I created SVGs of floorplans to be used by an in house application. I also kept in touch with team lead over contracting to ensure good communication and timely delivery of invoices.
I worked with members of the Digital Marketing team to create two infographics based on surveys conducted. I recreated previous newletter design to be used as a banner on websites. I followed instructions to help other team members. I created a 3-D render of a promoted home. Last but not least, I trained on how to create SVGs of floorplans to be used by an in house application.
Visualization ConcentrationEast Tennessee State UniversityJohnson City, TN | 2017
I went to East Tennessee State University and studied Digital Media. My focus was in visualization, which allowed me to explore the many different facets of visualization within my major. Thanks to this, I have experience in a variety of things such as digital illustration, asset creation, 3D modeling, graphic design, media design within a digital platform, layout design, and web design. Though I've learned a lot, my real passion is UI/UX design.
The beautiful thing about UI/UX design is it can encompass so many different things. There are user experience designers which could mean doing user research, testing, wireframe creation based on reasearch, etc. User experience design let's me focus solely on how the user will interact with a certain design or product, with an emphasis on enhancing their experience. On a similar note, user interface design let's me put the user studies into action by bringing a design to life. This could mean anything from creating a mock up of the design to a visualization of how the product should behave to a prototype to creating the functionality. It's such a wonderful topic that is so prevalent in the modern world.
