To me, design is about creating solutions for a human desire. It’s about taking information in many forms and applying it in a way to help simplify people’s lives.
In the digital world, whether it’s a website, application, game or other form of media, the design becomes a house that holds everything within it together. Depending on the design solution, it can greatly impact the way people interact with the elements presented to them.
If it’s a small design solution or a large one, connecting all the pieces together is important to create balance. Well designed solutions allow for decisions to be made more quickly by the individuals in need.
Most importantly, information of any form in design is only important if you have individuals that desire the information given. It’s all about connecting with people and building a better world.
I always consider my work as an adaptable medium. There are certainly ideal goals, but the process of the journey is what helps us and our work grow toward a successful outcome. Everything has phases, so it’s important for me to keep adaptability in mind to be in sync with team players and the every changing needs of the user.
I follow best practices and love being consistent with design. I always consider the big picture and the details in every instance. Design patterns establish a full experience that becomes beautiful and organized.
I strive to create simple and easy flowing experiences from complex systems. When everything lives in balance, it becomes easy to navigate for the user.
To me, connection is everything. Deeply connecting and empathizing with users supports solutions that the users need and desire. Everything in the design process involves connection on a multitude of levels and can build the best experiences when everything is in harmony. If we take time to feel and understand where the users are coming from, we can make unforgettable and practical experiences.
I always ask myself why I am doing what I am doing. The people using the products I help create are in need of something that’s a priority to them. I always connect with my team so we are inline with each other about the intentions of our work and how it influences the users.
