Hey, I'm Luci
I am a relentlessly optimistic UX designer who is passionate about diving into complex topics, developing an understanding of the problem, and creating enjoyable experiences for real people.
Aside from my passion for design, I can contribute a fresh perspective, empathetic approach, and strong work ethic. I am quick to take initiative on projects and thrive in fast-paced and collaborative environments.
What I Do
From quick sketches on the back of scrap paper to designs refined through iterations and testing; wireframes are how I translate problems and requirements into a vision.
An idea comes alive when you can share it on the device it's intended for. Prototyping is an integral part of my process and I hardly go a day without invision.
I feel completely at home planning research, leading a brainstorm session, and standing next to a white board scribbling the team's ideas. I love the moment when you know you are onto something real.
