I AM CHRISTINA

Well Hello!

Welcome to my portfolio! 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!

A Dive into My Personality

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 Purdue UX Design

Organizer

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.

PHILOSOPHY
My Design

A deep dive into how I approach design...

CONNECTION

Ensuring the user connects

with the designs.

INTUITIVE

Creating seamless introductions + being consistent with designs.

DATA-BACKED

Supporting design decisions with both user, primary, and secondary research.

Throughout my design experience, I have found interests in the above initiatives. Concerning data-backed, I was able to work on a project (UEGroup + XCenter) that required an intense focus on participatory design. After experience a strong connection with the users, I was intrigued by engaging in more research to ensure my design decisions were supported. 

Diving into intuitive, I have had a few opportunities where I was able to work on creating onboarding experiences. These instances were in my case study (Ibotta internship), UEGroup + XCenter sponsored project, and Innovatemap sponsored project. Some products need to provide some guidance on how to use them and I find it challenging to tackle onboarding.

And lastly, connection. During my project with UEGroup + XCenter, I was able to dive into my skills on creating empathy with users. In order to design a product that will help users, it needs to create a feeling of connection. The product must attend to the user's needs and the best way to achieve success is to speak with users.
