About MeAbout

"IDEAPERSON"
Zaianne

UI + UX Designer with a passion for designing beautiful and functional user experiences, with a focus on digital product design. I craft engaging design solutions for products with new & complex visions. I've worked on a wide range of products and experiences, including native and mobile web apps. I have also helped businesses by improving their products.

I’m a believer in rapid prototyping and constant iterations so that outcomes have less opportunity to be bogged down by subjective biases. I am truly dedicated to the end-to-end user experience. My knowledge of HTML/CSS, helps me communicate efficiently and intuitively with engineers to ensure accurate implementation.

I'm interested in taking on new challenges that involve learning new technologies and methods of doing things differently. I read a lot of tech blogs/magazines and love learning and writing in new languages in my spare time.

MY SKILLS

CREATING CONCEPTS

Every great design starts with an idea/concept. An idea is what forms the fundamental parts. It’s very important that all the fundamental parts are well defined and working.

VISUALISING IDEAS

The best way to present an idea is to visualise it. It makes your idea alive. In many cases, visualisation helps users understand the story that a business wants to tell them.

BUILDING PRODUCTS

Building products is my passion. It’s more than just design. It’s about understanding the company and its clients. It’s about complex processes and joinery to achieve success.

IMPROVING UX

User experience is an essential part of the service/product nowadays. Creating experience starts with the value proposition. After that comes usability—how easy a product is to use.
