How I got into UX: Personal storyboard

Story board-01.png

1.

My captivation with design started through architectural spaces and concepts.

In 2013,  I began my 5-year accelerated master program in Architecture with my thesis in Interiors. I wanted to create interesting and functional spaces for the people who would ultimately be the end-users.

I realized the best way to bring value to users was to get to know them.

The key thing that was missing was the ability to close the loop: create, test, and iterate. I was uneasy with the assumptions that a lot of design exists on. Architecture is a structured and massive field but I wanted to design for the ever-changing human needs, lifestyles, and expectations.

I found UX and it clicked - the definite right choice for me.

On one side, the focus on the user allows me to tap into my empathy and desire to help people. While on the other side, design thinking frameworks validate ideation and creativity in a strategic approach --  allowing us, in teams, to solve big problems, have a large impact. and enhance existing experiences and lifestyles.
