RENEE ROUNDS

 

I am a seasoned designer who is passionate about creating delightful user experiences. I understand the value that design brings to a company. I am experienced at working with software engineers and product owners and can quickly communicate effectively and provide value within the team. I lead by being engaged with the team through the entire process and to encourage creative thinking through mentorship.

PASSION

I have always been passionate about great design. My mother is wildly creative and artistic, and my dad can make even the junkiest car look like a show piece. Growing up, I was fortunate to go to some amazing art museums and be continuously inspired. I was exposed to new ways of thinking and how this related to things I used everyday. As my love for art continued to grow, so did my passion for expressing myself through photography and design. After graduating from college with a degree in advertising, I began focusing more on the design side of it. I had always had a passion for psychology, so my path naturally moved in the direction of UX and management. I still love to dive in and design whenever I can, though.

PROCESS

All great user experience design begins with a process. I follow lean UX principles to be able to work quickly and be as adaptable as possible during all stages of development. This process works great with teams of all sizes and helps to ensure that the solution seamlessly solves the problem. It all starts with user research, learning what the pain points are with the users and finding a way to solve them.

I've been around the design block

I have been in the design industry for 10+ years and have worked in many facets of it. From midnight press checks and bringing out the trash, to designing a coffee table book and holding client meetings, I have always wanted to do more and learn more. My portfolio shows projects from different points in my career to show the diversity of what I have done, as well as a deeper look into many of the UX projects from recently.
