I’m Kyle, a Minneapolis-based UX Designer focused on building software for the web.
I love digging into data to boost results; including user testing, analytics & A/B testing.
I believe a good UX design process improves products through prototyping, testing & optimizing.
By combining UX design & development, I can rapidly turn ideas into prototypes.
Managing projects within a team - including requests, assignments, time, availability, documents, and more.
Workfront is a SaaS work management tool that is used by companies like Cisco, Redbull, AMC, and ESPN. I worked as a UX designer, embedded into Agile teams, focused on various areas of the tool.
I designed an Android widget for logging time into the tool. I created mockups and user tested them, while working with the remote Android team in Armenia.
I worked with project managers to create requirements, wireframes, and protypes. We conducted user testing both remotely and in-person. We also travelled to interview our customers and understand the context in which our software was being used and uncover new problems we could solve.
I led design on two large projects: one to optimize report delivery and another to integrate an if-this-then-that workflow builder. These projects required communication with teams across the company and iterative protyping and user testing.
After adopting a new puppy I noticed the name sites weren't helpful in finding a suitable name. Most were long, dull A-Z lists.
I designed & developed a tool to search for names by styles like elegant or tough & themes like sports or movies.
Clearly this was a common problem, as the site has reached up to 1 million views per month. The traffic has given me a chance to do some user testing & monetize the site.
As the site grew, I also designed a tool to compare dog breeds by selected traits.View Site
Finding an easy way to track personal goals. Existing tools aren't great for tracking goals & are often centered on projects or tasks.
I designed & developed GoalChamp to track goals on a timeline. Goals include the ability to set a primary task to encourage focusing on the next step. I also added tracking features such as a date countdown and a progress meter.
GoalChamp was something I wanted to build for a long time. To scratch that itch I taught myself how to develop a login system and run database queries.View Site
Helping professionals find and order tv & projector mounts for complex AV installations.
I've planned & designed multiple versions of Chief's website as well as their parent company Milestone (which the site was eventually merged into).
As the lead designer at Chief, I worked with many departments including IT, sales, customer service, engineering, product and the executive team to plan changes to the website.
I also met with customers to do user-testing and worked with outside firms to conduct customer experience research & design thinking exercises.
