  2. 2. Nicola Page UX UI and Visual Design Specialist 0405485628 ▪ nicolaCpage@hotmail.com ▪ behance.net/nicolacpage au.linkedin.com/in/nicolacpage I was contracted as the lead UX UI and Visual Designer to review user feedback from the current site and develop a course provider dashboard for a new platform for the We Teach Me course booking system and to deliver my findings as a clickable prototype, graphic design and style guides. Over this period I engaged UX practices to ideate, develop and design a course provider dashboard including processes for managing and creating course listings, ticketing and payment methods. I drew on research to establish relevant user personas, site maps and user flows for the new platform and develop these into wire frames, a clickable prototype and high resolution visual designs completed in Axure, Photoshop and Illustrator. I undertook design investigations to establish the best practice and design styles used on similar platforms to incorporate the most effective solutions for the project. The design solutions were implemented into the current system immediately wherever possible with the new platform to be launched later in 2015. During this contract I also delivered wire frames and completed visual designs for various projects the company had been commissioned to complete. 2015 Feb to May

Nicola Page UX UI and Visual Design Specialist 0405485628 ▪ nicolaCpage@hotmail.com ▪ behance.net/nicolacpage au.linkedin.com/in/nicolacpage UX Design Student ▪ October 2014 to December 2014 ▪ General Assembly Melbourne Participation in ten weeks of immersive training for UX UI design, user centred design and research. Over ten weeks we practiced techniques to develop UI design through the following UX methodologies. Resarch - We began by conducting user research through user interviews, surveys and contextual enquiry. In addition to clarify the brief, stakeholder interviews and a site visits were performed to elicit the underlying business requirements. Competitor analysis yielded design ideas and identified opportunities to create a seamless, consistent and engaged user experience. Analysis and ideation - To assist ideation, key insights and observations were synthesised using concept mapping, user flow mapping, task analysis, development of user personas and story boarding. Prototyping and testing - Having defined the key priorities that our solution need to address, an initial paper prototype was created using a design studio approach. This was further refined into wire frames and finally yielded a high fidelity prototype. Each iteration was exposed to usability testing and subsequent design adjustments reflected in the final proposed solution. This process was built upon over a series of five research and design projects three of which being group work in small design teams and the final being an internship with Ten Collective.
