DESIGNER


As a user experience designer, my process begins with research, sketches, storyboards, flows and user journeys. I translate concepts into diagrams, wireframes, and technical documentation for collaboration with product teams and developers — I manage clients, create briefs, build prototypes and test with users.

After moving to New York to work as an architect, I realised that the practice of architectural design was far removed from the contextual human centric process that I had learned at university. I decided that the next frontier of design was information technology and service design. I joined the interaction design association and began my transition to UX practitioner at General Assembly User Experience Design Immersive. I went on to work with top agencies Droga5, McCann Worldwide and became Director of Interactive at Launchpad. After returning to Ireland, I took up a position at Travelport Digital, working through an agile framework. I continue to practice UX as a consultant with my agency RóSö Studio: http://roso.studio

MY PROCESS

Stakeholder Interviews
These interviews help me get a better grasp of the client's goals.

Competitor Analysis
It’s important to understand the landscape and precedents. 

Content Audit
Understanding the overall scale of the content in the system.

Contextual Inquiry
I observe how, where, and when people use the design in normal life.

User Surveys
I design surveys that help me to collect quantitative data from users.

User Interviews
Interviews with users are important to get qualitative data for personas.

Rapid Prototyping
Building functioning prototypes help me to test and iterate faster.

User Testing
I ask users to perform tasks in person and collect their feedback.

SOFTWARE

Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator / Sketch / Invision / Axure / UXPin / Marvel / HTML-CSS / Keynote /  SketchUp / AutoCAD / Rhino / V-Ray / Unity 3D

UNICEF CAMPAIGN


I worked on this UNICEF app Droga5. We built a mobile website that tracks a user's activity and rewards them for going without their phone. Every minute users go without their phones helps provide clean drinking water to children in developing countries.

I was responsible for the UX of additional features added in the second year of running.

It was a 2015 Webby Award Winner

The Rock Clock APP


Duane ‘The Rock’ Johnson is a former wrestler/actor emerging as a major celebrity. He wants to help motivate underprivileged youths to achieve their goals by waking them up every morning. The Rock Clock forms part of his new endeavour, Project Rock.

NDBH WEB


NDBH is the largest behavioural healthcare provider in the USA. For a company that specialises in support for people with mental health issues as well as everyday human resources solutions, the branding and language had to be matched with an equally soft approach to UX. This project was completed while I was Director of Interactive at Launchpad with a team of UX/UI designers, front end developers and copywriters.
