Experience & Visual Designer
Servian - servian.com

Working at Servian I've had the opportunity to step up into my UX shoes. I was the first UXer in the Melbourne office, so my first task was to shape what the capabilities would be like. With that premise I developed a process which I -and future team mates- would follow on internal work.

Servian, being its own brand needs taking care of, making sure everything is upholding brand standards, so this involves much of my visual design tasks. Internal jobs include marketing material such as: One pagers, Brochures and Offers, creation of sub-brand offerings, branding and design of new original products and assistance with presentation brand alignment.

Regardless of internal work sometimes including some UX and UI design, the majority of these come from external clients. When engaging with clients I work as the experience and visual expert, I run co-design workshops to unite forces with the stakeholders and end users to make the solution the best possible. Then I create mid and high fidelity wireframes that follow a specific style guide.

Collab Agency -  collabagency.com.au

During my time as the senior designer at Collab Agency, I noticed the lack of comprehensive UX processes.

I introduced the agency to research, validation and development for many of our projects, led the adoption of these practices, and quickly took on the responsibility of educating our clients in the relevance and importance of this discipline.
