I developed high level and/or detailed storyboards, mockups, and prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas. I have strong ability to present the user interface visually so information is easy to read, easy to understand and easy to find. I worked across multiple teams including design, production, marketing, editorial, business, and software engineering to create products meeting client's standards. I developed new and adjusted existing visual/branding/interaction style guidelines and standards. I assisted teams during development with graphic possibilities and limitations. I worked with Product Management team to translate requirements into concepts and user experience design. I created interaction models, user task flows, screen designs, and UI details that promote ease of use, improving and optimizing the user experience. I developed and maintained wireframes and prototypes to communicate design and UX ideas. Participated on user tasting scenes and collected users feedback during prototype presentations.
