A Journey in UX Design

Dedicated to the convergence of creativity and functionality, I’m currently mastering UX Design, blending my artistic background with a passion for simplifying human experiences. Having successfully completed the Google UX Design Certificate, I am now refining the projects from the course and building out my first comprehensive portfolio and website—a UX project in itself. With a solid foundation from the Google UX Design Certificate and ongoing learning experiences at Theorem Product Academy, I am immersing myself in both in-person mentorship and self-paced online learning. My mission is to empower lives through visually engaging and user-friendly designs. I seamlessly merge my artistic background with the principles of UX, ensuring that each design solution is visually impactful and user-centric. From fostering creativity for individuals with disabilities to managing social media operations, my diverse experiences culminate in a commitment to enhancing everyday interactions through thoughtful and impactful design solutions.

Plant ER App - Education and Diagnosis for House Plants

Problem: House plants, while beautiful, pose challenges in care. Existing online resources are cluttered, and plant care systems are complex and confusing.

Goal: Plant ER aims to provide a user-friendly app with clear navigation, concise information, and features that educate and remind users about plant care.

Solution: The Plant ER app’s user flow is designed to guide users intuitively through plant issue diagnosis. Features include symptom input and photo analysis, leading to tailored solutions. Prioritizing simplicity ensures users confidently address houseplant issues, fostering empowerment.
