Successfully taking projects from concept through to hand coded HTML

 

I have all of the skills need to take a project from initiation, through research and concepts to design, refine and finally hand code standards compliant HTML ready to be developed. As well as an eye for design, an understanding of the relevant technology a successful UX designer must truly understand the needs and wishes of their target user. This means they must have the ability to listen to and have empathy with users needs and be able to deliver it in a usable, inspiring way.
