Elizabeth Klingen Product Designer Lizzy is a Bay Area based designer interested in how human perception influences “good design”. She graduated with a BA in Cognitive Science from UC Berkeley and has worked as both a brand and product designer for startups and large tech companies. Elizabeth will be providing UI/UX design. I help organizations draw insights to get a more complete view of their users/customers, and ultimately make informed decisions. Part of my role is to always be taking myself out of my comfort zone of what I know, and putting myself into the mindset of others and what they are feeling, what they want, and how they are behaving during an interaction. Things I really enjoy doing include:+Research in the field; observing, interviewing, and listening to users +Collaborating with other researchers, designers, and stakeholders to create designs that are considered from a variety of perspectives so that they are as inclusive and as diverse as possible +Working closely with product managers and engineers to make fast iterations and to test prototypes that are as close to the end product as possible with users. My skills: wireframing, storyboarding, sketching, creating mockups and prototypes, user research, ethnographic research, user testing, illustration, branding, content strategy.
