Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. - Steve Jobs

Great design is where user needs and business goals meet.

I’m Allison, a UX Designer with a background in web design and product. From ideation to launch, I take a holistic approach to the design process, ensuring that every aspect of the product is user-centered and driven by business objectives.

Workspace Booking Calendar

Supporting the Future of Work

For organizations adopting the hybrid work model, hot desking and hoteling are two office space management concepts that are becoming increasingly popular. To facilitate this, companies use software solutions that allow employees to book the space they need when they need it. While taking into account all space types and date selection patterns, this workspace booking calendar presents the user with a simple but highly informative interface.

Interaction Design

Creating Delightful Experiences

Interaction design can take a product from a cold, digital experience to a more tangible, human one. This gallery displays some of the interaction design projects I have been a part of.

Attentli

Reduce Distraction Time
(Personal Passion Project)

Reminder apps, alarm apps, and timer apps are commonly used to assist with staying focused and task completion. However, individuals with attention difficulties, such as ADHD, may find these apps less effective. Although these apps can provide initial reminders, they may not provide sufficient accountability for staying focused and completing the task at hand.

In what way can an app offer this accountability? Attentli is designed to use regular sound or vibration reminders at intervals specified by the user to activate memory and help maintain focus.

Allison is the best problem-solver I’ve ever worked with. She approaches design with a strategic thoughtfulness and thoroughness that result in seamless, outstanding results. And even beyond the results, she is a genuine pleasure to work with, communicating clearly and often.

— Julie A.

Allison took my list of the data that needed to be on the page, and in a very short timeframe, she created a mockup that not only provides insights but is also beautiful and engaging. She helped solve problems that I saw in my original design but didn’t have solutions for.

Let's make something great together!

I would love to hear about you and your project.
