#WhyIBecame a UX designer - by @iamkelyta
“My journey into this career wasn’t the typical journey & I never knew that I wanted to be a UX designer. I actually didn’t even know that UX/UI design was even a field. What I knew was that I loved finding problems & making life easier for people. I loved building relationships and figuring out the WHY behind people’s interactions with products, websites, services and what their experiences were after the fact.
3 years ago, I was sitting in a cubical for a software sales company surfing YouTube. I stumbled on a video about UX/UI design and something just clicked. I jumped head first into UX/UI & never looked back. I left an unfulfilling job for a passion filled career in UX design doing something where I can truly say that I make an impact.”
Loved working on this project. We created a spelling game that unites the physical and digital worlds with #RFID -enhanced blocks and an #Arduino .

Hangout amanhã, dia 12/12, às 20h (horário de Brasília) - ative seu lembrete no Youtube: http://bit.ly/hangout-alunos
Nesse Hangout conversaremos com alguns alunos da nossa Comunidade que já migraram para UX/UI Design. Eles contarão como superaram os desafios de se ingressar em uma nova área, como se prepararam os processos seletivos (portfolio, currículo e entrevistas) e como é o dia a dia de cada um, agora atuando como UX/UI Designers.
I research feature/strategies of the current existing recipe apps. One opportunity I found is that most recipe apps lack focus and differentiation. Therefore, I decided to design an original vegan recipe app that focuses on targeted users and provide tailoring features. The app is going to solve the problem of making vegan diet tasty and nutrient balanced.
The solution/feature will focus on:
Nutrition monitoring and goal setting
Behavioural change for a vegan lifestyle
The most interesting UI patterns I used for this app is good old tinder swipe interaction. People said what you see is what you get, which is quite fitting for vegan foood. Especially, taking photos of a vegan recipe is popular on social media. In-depth, I also colour-coded nutrition because scientists have approved vegetable colour literally matched certain nutrient.
The End result is Bllo, a recipe "dating" app. You can also search for the "cuties" you loved and put them all in your personal recipe page.

We can strive to make products that move users and businesses forward to a better place than they were before.
Or, we can blindly build features and move the Jira tickets from one lane to another before the sprint ends. Tick a box and show progress to our stakeholders.
New data is showing that losing 80% of mobile users is normal.
Now is the time to build ‘better’.
⚠️NEW PROJECT ALERT! ⚠️ Recently, I had the pleasure of being tossed to redesign a homepage in just 1 hour. It was a great challenge that tested my critical reasoning skills on a time frame shorter than I usually work on, and I really learned a lot.
I honestly encourage any designer looking at this to do this challenge for yourself. You never know what you might learn about yourself and your process! in the meantime as we countdown to the ascenders release on Saturday I am very proud to be able to show this project off to you!
What project are you proud of this week? Let me Know!
