About

I'm Liz – a designer, prototyper, and composer.

How I got here

My journey into technology and design began after using Max/MSP in musical experiments. Searching for a better understanding of the software, I signed up for night classes in Python – and subsequently made the move into front end.

Prior to making the leap into technology, I worked in political consulting and communications.

As a composer, I've had my music performed by the BBC Singers, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Robert Saxton, and Trevor Wishart.

Product design – particularly in the musical space – seems the best way to marry these threads together.

Competencies

Strategic deliverables

I use competitive analyses, user flows, information architecture, and cross-platform flows to better consider the holistic user experience.

Tactical deliverables

I deliver well-presented wireframes and interactive prototypes to communicate my ideas.

Cross-functional toolkit

Interface design (Figma / Sketch), production HTML/CSS and Javascript, platform SDKs (Android Studio), and native prototyping (Framer).

Visual design

I value layout, typography and visual hierarchy, as well as adherence to design foundations.

User research

Prior experience in workshop facilitation, user testing, and evaluation and synthesis of findings.

Code
