Clare Bond, Digital Maker, Lead UX Designer (Product) at NRG Home Solar
User-centered design for engaging digital interactions
I am an award-winning artist and designer who codes.
My approach is user-centered and is drawn from the results of user testing, and a deep empathetic understanding of user needs, while meeting product specifications.
I enjoy the creative synergy of collaborating and communicating with different stakeholders and team members across marketing, engineering, business development and design. I speak passionately and engagingly to pitch ideas and designs, to gain stakeholder support, and understanding, and I understand the value of giving and receiving constructive feedback and positive reinforcement in team building.
I think the difference between a good product and a great one is in how seamless it is to use: how elegantly it uses visual narrative to move the user through their journey, and bring them back again.
I’m always reaching for the best possible solution for a given context. I’m not afraid of iteration, and I know how and when to mock-up, prototype and wireframe. When it’s time to polish, I can tweak pixels with the best of them.
For as long as I remember, the alchemy of making has deeply fascinated me
So, what makes me different?
