This month we have local UX designers sharing their work and personal UX mission.
Jacqueline Sullivan from Pawtucket, RI - changing career from Graphic Designer to UX Designer
Fenny Gao from Quincy, MA - changing career from Education to UX Designer
They both had a career change and found an interest in the field of UX. They are recent graduates of General Assembly Boston's UXDI: a 10-week immersive course that teaches concepts and skills in UX Design. In addition, they applied their learning of the UX process in five short sprint conceptual projects, which are highlighted in their portfolios. They look forward to meeting more professionals in the field and getting constructive feedback on their portfolios.
Dig deep into designing effective dashboards for your users with Angela Madsen.
Angela is a UX designer with a focus on information architecture and content strategy, has a love for design operations and user research, and has at least a little bit of experience in the full UX design spectrum. Her creative and organization roots go back to college (art degree and library campus job), and had coupled with an abiding curiosity and steep learning curve that eventually landed her in UX design in 2016. She spent about 20 years in the finance industry dancing in the funky nexus of data and design before realizing that UX added empathy, cognitive biases, and psychology of perception to her everyday work, making them a resource instead of a niceness.
