I am a User Advocate

And my name is kitti, Nice to meet you.

A long long time ago, in a land before iPads and Facebook, I entered into the field of “Web Design”.  I stared out like most do, working at 800×600, slicing with Photoshop and writing inline styles in Dreamweaver. Boom!! I had made it, I was a web designer! As my career progressed, I learned how to write code (HTML/CSS). I dabbled with javascript, php and mySQL and I became pretty great at all things WordPress. I really enjoyed what I was doing, but customer after customer, I was forced into signing off on what I knew could be better. My problem was that I didn’t know how to prove it.

Fast forward to 2004, I began working with a woman who called herself a designer, but the majority of her deliverables weren’t hi-defs, they weren’t even “pretty”. She interviewed users, created wireframes and built prototypes.  I saw how she was able to validate her recommendations to the customer and senior management and that’s when realized, this is what I want need to be doing.

I had finally found my calling. I’ve fallen in love with UX and I’m happy to say it still gives me butterflies. From personas to prototypes, I have a passion for the entire process,  it’s what makes me tick.
