When I first discovered UX, I realized I’d found the crossroads of everything I was interested in: storytelling, design, and the human psychology. To me, UX strikes that perfect balance between the artistic and technical.
UX attracts me in that it’s everywhere in our lives, from the arrangement of the buttons on my coffee maker to the shape of my door handle. On interfaces, it presents itself in the delight of an unexpected micro-interaction, or in the satisfaction of flowing seamlessly from one task to the next.
I still enjoy doodling on my iPad in my free time, or tinkering around with programming to explore the way design and code fit together. It’s fun to explore the many ways in which design is expressed in our lives, and how it relates back to my role as a UX designer.
