A little bit about me

Hello, I am Christina Vandenoever. I am currently a fourth year at Purdue University pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in UX Design and a minor in Psychology. My strengths are UI/UX Design, user research, prototyping, communication, and team management. My two passions in life are creativity and helping others and I am hoping to bring both of those into my present and future work!

My Interests and Strengths

I chose to pursue UX Design because it allows me to work with others every day and I am able to make an impact in people's experiences. After designing with a UX mindset, I have become familiar with Adobe programs, Figma, Whimsical, and other prototyping programs while continuously growing my communication and leadership skills. While Product design is my passion, I also enjoy research and UI

Outside of the design studio, I enjoy studying with my friends, playing tennis + volleyball on the University courts, painting, and strive to make a positive impact on those around me.

Mentorship for UX Design

Organizer of program

Throughout my interactions with new UX Design students at Purdue, I found many of them searching for mentorship. As the main contact, in the club, for prospective students and underclassmen, I began to realize that I could not give everyone an effective amount of information.

Due to this, I began the mentorship program through the PXD Club for upperclassmen and 2nd year grad students to mentor underclassmen and prospective students! I am currently overseeing these interactions.

Past

me in UX Design

The first instance I encountered design through a more business point of view, was in high school. I had the opportunity to take four graphic design classes during my years in high school and they influenced my interest in User Experience Design.

 

As I familiarized myself with many different programs, including Adobe Suite, my horizons doubled. I enjoyed using programs to not only create advertisements but also enjoyable experiences for users.

PRESENT

Now that I have a year of experience with UX Design, my view of design has changed drastically. UX Design has taught me about user groups, about evaluating interfaces, about presenting your ideas along with backing them up with the many things you have done to get where you have gotten.

 

Now, instead of just wanting to work with advertisements, I want to work with websites, applications, and experiences. My design mindset is now more focused on designing meaningful experiences rather than just physical designs. And that is what I want to do now...make meaningful experiences for people.

Future

While I do not know what my future holds, I still have aspirations and dreams that I would like to see come true. Looking at my future now, I hope to be making an impact in the design community. Whether my position is a leader or just a team member in a UX team, I hope to be able to make more meaningful experiences for people.
 

My personal goal has and always will be to make people smile and enjoy their time being spent with me or something that I design. Considering this, I am looking forward to seeing my designs make an impact.
