User Experience Design or UX Design centers on the needs of the user, the people who products and services are targeted at. It focuses on building an understanding of the user and their needs by employing empathetic information gathering (surveys, interviews, making session) and building prototypes and complete products that are tested by users throughout the process.
UX design is key to building a product or service that functions well, doesn't frustrate the user, and accomplishes the goal it was designed for efficiently.
Design Thinking is solution focused innovation. I used Design Thinking to solve complex UX problems.
Design Thinking is a process taught at universities around the world including, and most famously, at the d.school at Stanford University. It's solution focused and highly user-centric.
Understanding your customers needs results in solution that are technologically feasible, meets your business needs, and deliver a product or service your clients enjoy using.
Below you'll find links to a list of projects that I've lead or been a part of where I used my skills as a designer, employed design thinking, and created a better outcome for the people who will use the products or services that I helped design.
