When trying to looking for a solution, I try to dig deep into the problem. Defining the problem can only be achieved through a cohesive research. Throughout projects I have done in the past, I conducted many interviews, usability testings, surveys, field studies and stakeholder interviews.
After user research has initiated, there comes lots of ideas and "solutions". Managing ideas is certainly difficult specially when it comes from main stakeholders who are excited about their solutions. I run workshops to gather ideas, document them and turn those ideas into prototypes. At this point things would be tested again to validate the ideas and hypothesis whether the solution is addressing the problems detected.
I live and breathe design, I love turning the prototypes into interactive mock ups. I have been working in many different industries, photography, fintech, insurtech, art and analytical interfaces. I have taught myself Illustrator in 2013 after graduation and worked with complex software such as Axure. I have designed logos, icons and brand books along this journey.
I have also experience with connecting APIs to digital ocean server and collect data for analysis in R and Python.
Every design and solution, no matter how perfect still needs to be tested by users, gathering feedback and analysing their behaviour towards the product and improving the design along the way. This is perfect recipes for the most successful products and no good product is designed perfectly by accident. After dealing with a lot of data in my work as UX researcher, I did another masters in Big Data Analytics at IESEG so I can find patterns and analyse users behaviour through big data captured on using the product.
