Have you ever sat down doing something you absolutely love and lose track of time? That's how design is for me. When I spent my time as a graphic designer, I knew I was missing something important when designing web layouts. I was missing the consideration for the user. I decided to further my education and discovered a whole new field "UX". With this new area of focus, I am able to merge my visual design skills and knowledge with psychology. I am having so much fun working with others to achieve impactful goals.

Working with great people
Bryttany and I worked together on a 4 person team to complete our capstone project in the summer of 2019 as part of DePaul University’s HCI program.
Our project was focused on developing a financial application that incorporated best practices from psychology to encourage folks to save money with ease.
Bryttany’s contributions to the team were manifold:
- - Bryttany kept us on task during our work sessions.
- - She always sought to maintain a line of sight between the questions asked in research and scope of the design output.
- - She created lo-fi and interactive hi-fi wireframes effortlessly and rapidly while maintaining objectivity about the designs during team critiques.
- - In addition to wireframes, she led the graphic design of our presentation materials, giving our hard work a polished finish that prioritized key findings and actionable next steps.
Bryttany is dedicated to user experience design and is a highly talented UX designer. Her innate talent more than accounts for her work experience. Any team that she is on will benefit from her attention to detail, her holistic thinking about the design process, and her support talents in graphic design and html/css.

I had the pleasure of working with Bryttany for a year and a half and have nothing but positive things to say! She had strong dedication to all projects, excellent communication skills, solid attention to detail, provided helpful creative insight, was extremely reliable and always maintained a high quality level of work while being on a tight timeline. She is always seeking out innovative ways to make the user experience as efficient as possible, while keeping it visually stimulating.

While working with Bryttany at Designory, I wholeheartedly felt I could rely on her for a multitude of things — both professional and personal. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field, and always willing to clearly explain her position and assist others like myself who work within different disciplines. She is the definition of a team player, and was often the glue that held our team together. I was also honored to be able to watch her grow in her UX skills to become the talented designer I know she is today. Bryttany single-handedIy helped to define my job at Designory, and I can only hope I have the privilege of working with more coworkers with her throughout the future of my career.
