Hello, I’m Steph.UX / UI Designer

I craft simple yet engaging experiences for users across cross-platform interfaces.


01 / Interaction design —

I am concerned about the intent of the user and how I can help them accomplish a task.


02 / Interactive design —

I think of the web as a series of branded moments that occur through a series of frames a user clicks through.

My Creative Process & Design Thinking



01 / Discover

Client & Industry Research —

How do they run their business? Who are their competitors? What problems do they solve for their customers and how? What is their company culture, reputation and brand personality?


02 / Define

User Research —

Who are the client’s primary audiences? What are their personality types, web behaviours, preferred interaction patterns and needs? Run usability tests, develop personas and user journey maps to identify ideal scenarios on existing pain points.


03 / Deduce

Information Architecture —

What content could be removed or consolidated? What parts of the site work well already? Is new content needed? Test architecture with users by card sorting and/or interactive prototypes.


04 / Determine

Wireframing —

Determine what content should be available on each page. Design the content structure, layout and interaction patterns for cross-platform device interfaces. Share prototypes with users and ask for feedback on assumptions.


05 / Design

Interface Design —

Building on-brand UI elements based on Human Interface Guidelines. Share high fidelity prototype with targeted users to get feedback and opinion.


06 / Deploy

Analytics & Usability Testing

Run follow-up usability tests based on any revelations from analytics overtime, previous design assumptions, and user complaints.
