Fundamentals of UX
The goal of this workshop is to give the knowledge and experience to apply UX fundamentals to current and future work. These topics are covered::* The concept and purpose behind user-centered design* Career-readiness for UX design* User research, usability testing, and reporting* Information architecture, taxonomies, and wireframes* Interaction design, and high and low-fidelity prototyping* Ethics in user experience design.
MySkillz4Afrika, a volunteer role that is a combination of education and actual design and research. I facilitated a series of design workshops to educate a team of young artists who have produced and distributed over 33M free comic books and 10,000 syndicated radio shows, becoming a household name and a leading youth brand in Kenya. The exercises from the workshops laid the foundation for beginning to establish user experience principles and an agile design process the Kenya and Tanzania team will adopt moving forward. Once we began to identify the brand's voice and applied the new design principles and guidelines to the product, we worked together to create plans to test and iterate the new design on the local Kenyan youth.
