Hi, I'm Amen

A designer using data to inform and drive design decisions to deliver optimal user outcomes

Currently Senior UX Designer at Nitro Inc.

A little about me

I'm a designer whose focus is on user research, interaction, design strategy, facilitation, and design ops. Throughout my design career, I have worked with reputable teams of engineers, product, business, and design leaders to solve challenging problems, craft processes, and design high-impact omni-channel experiences.

As a designer, I am always conscious of the impact of my work and the role that I play in bridging the gap between the experiences that I create and how users interact with them.

If you are interested in learning more about my work and processes, or just curious about my journey as a designer who started out in advertising, please reach out.

Having some knowledge of code as a UX designer

There has been a lot of debate with no closure whether UX designers should learn to code or not. Those in support believe that it will make the UX designer more prepared for the work environment when they have to work with developers and programmers, so it is more of an asset.
