Hello World

Hello Hey Greetings Hi Howdy ‘Sup
Why hello there, it’s Hemi here, a girl from just north of London who once stumbled across a thing called user experience design and got hooked.

When I was younger I was always mystified why household items had a concoction of baffling symbols slapped over them leaving adults struggling to use them. Why on earth did we just accept it? We all have daily encounters with bad design which often leave us frustrated with a whole host of other negative feelings.

Growing up (to my 20’s so far) and exploring what is user experience design has left me aspiring to be a designer, someone who champions the user’s experience and always leaves them with a host of positive feelings. Now in my final year of university I wanted a place to showcase my projects whilst continuing to improve my skills. Brainstorming this evening left my desk looking like this and the creation of this site:

Brainstorm

Ideas for how to showcase my skills

I aim to post projects that fall into these categories to show my varied skill set and interests:

  • Re-designs
  • Briefs
  • Non-visual designs
  • Tech up’s
  • Concepts

Looking forward to sharing my ideas (working on a re-design at the moment) and hearing all your thoughts so please do leave comments or share your own re-designs. Now to leave you with one of my favorite staple UX quotes:

If the user can't use it, it doesn't work

If the user can’t use it, it doesn’t work and if they can’t find it, it doesn’t exist.

til next time
Hemi
