— Frank Chimero, Designer
My passion for UX started back in my first job out of University. I was tasked with project managing the company’s new website build, as we were using an outside agency to build our WordPress site. After launch, I learnt to update, maintain and improve the website we had. This is where my initial interest in web design / development began.User experience and dev articles/tutorials (external link)Books i'm reading (external link)Tools i use (external link)
Over many evenings I spent hours learning about design, development and WordPress, which led me to building my first site for a family member. It wasn’t great, but at the time I was proud of it. From there I completed a few more small sites.
Eventually I ended up leaving the company I was working for, to create my own business and provide myself more time to study. Three months into running the business I came across the term UX, so my next study path started! I spent hours reading books; anything from Don’t make me think, Elements of User Experience, and the UX Team Of One, to mention just a few.
My studying moved online thanks to the Interaction Design Foundation (an amazing non-profit community), where I have taken many courses and I am still taking on more today.
Most recently I have been working for a company called Methods as Lead Interaction Designer, managing a growing team working on a multitude of services within the public sector.
