GitHub - renepacchaux/this-ux-design-portfolio: A Meta Style entry for what is happening with the construction of my UX portfolio

Breaking it down into pages Work on exercises daily. Let the design principles that I've learned become second nature. It helps calibrate what I'm taking in. It lets me subtract what mine from what is part of the user (the work) is. I want to explain UX as scooping ice cream.

Design process applied to this portfolio and additional, updated techniques to stay in the mindset required to do the work.

# UX Designer focus

Breaking it down into pages

Work on exercises daily. Let the design principles that I've learned become second nature. It helps calibrate what I'm taking in.

It lets me subtract what mine from what is part of the user (the work) is.

Where UX Applies

Platform Agnostic

Most of the time, I describe by doing. In technology, templates mean somthing slightly different than filling out a sign-up sheet or medical form. They have moving parts to them.

  1. Can I describe what a UX designer is in 5 minutes?
  2. Does it serve me well to bring up code?

You can tell a lot about someone from how they scoop their ice cream. Are they careful and deliberate? Are they calm where otherwise managing a hectic lifestyle? I say these prerequisites are not random. There was a design placed to the enjoyment the first scoop.

What about the data

To notice small things that add up to big Eye tracking software exists. Its a short distance away from ‘scoop-tracking' software.

hypothetical scoop tracking What picture would this paint for us? Do you measure the shape and volume of the first scoop? What number would reveal that the subject just wanted to eat the ice cream?

Out design other work?
