The User Experience (UX) approach to design is practical, based on answering the needs of real people...
My tried and tested approach is:
Every stage in the design process is informed by the needs of the user.
- Empirical and agile
I obtain feedback and make observations via testing, then incorporate learnings as efficiently and effectively as possible.
- Beautifully intuitive
A self-taught coder and artist at heart, I am able to respond intelligently and sensitively to both technological and aesthetic requirements.
- Holistic and empathetic
I think about design in terms of crafting a dynamic experience, rather than a static thing, syncing with the user's lifestyle, thoughts, feelings, and sensations. My ultimate aim is to help create something that seamlessly resonates with their identity,
and the way they perceive or experience the world, perhaps sparking a moment of joy.
My Skills and Experience
My curiosity about design fundamentally stems from curiosity about human nature and how we interact with the world. Whilst studying Philosophy and Modern Languages (🇫🇷, 🇪🇸) at Durham University, I grew passionate about embodiment and identity theories. I see the designed world as an extension of our embodiment and identity as human beings.
At the Royal College of Art, my research involves applying principles from yoga and other embodiment practices to design processes.
Alongside practical projects, I have lectured on Interaction and Interface Design at the University for Creative Arts. I also teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga in Hackney, on Thursdays and Sundays. See lucy.yoga to find out more.
