My Career in Design

Hi my name is Charious,
I'm a User Experience Designer & Researcher with over 7 years of professional design experience, I strive to design intuitive experiences that delight end users as well as meet their needs. My experience is derived from a diverse variety of agency and client work. From websites to mobile sites to entire systems, my understanding of workflows and users' needs is varied and robust. I am interested in finding a position that utilizes design and research for the greater good. I believe that great products come from truly understanding users - their needs, contexts, and environment. I generally advocate the lean UX approach of iteratively creating and testing designs in an agile manner.

WHAT I DO BEST:
  • • Drive a human-centered design process
  • • Balance blue-sky vision thinking with a pragmatic understanding of feasibility
  • • Extract actionable information from users through interviews, surveys, and participatory design
  • • Craft compelling design deliverables to define and prioritize product definition
  • • Identify intersections in business and user needs through stakeholder interviews and business analysis
  • • Building visuals(mock-ups, wireframes) and interactive prototypes
  • EXAMPLE PROCESSES AND DELIVERABLES:
  • • Qualitative / Quanitative research aimed at forming a foundational understanding of the user landscape
  • • Research insights, behavioral profiles, personas
  • • Competitive analysis
  • • Stakeholder interviews
  • • Experience principles
  • • Product requirements documentation
  • • Minimum viable product definition
  • • Concept sketching
  • • Annotated wireframes
  • • Click through and paper prototypes
  • • Iterative testing and design of prototypes until a design is complete
  • Tools I like to use
