Pull back the curtain to learn what it’s really like working in the UX Design field with Human Centered Design Expert, Design Educator and GrowthX Academy mentor, Jamal Nichols. Jamal has worked for global brands including Google, Wells Fargo, Walmart and BMW. He is currently a UX Lead at Equinix in Redwood City, CA.
In this webinar, Jamal will share his experiences and insights working as a UX Design professional in Silicon Valley, both as a contractor and an employee.
The unique perspective I bring to your business is based on the lens through which I see the world: because I’m a mix of very disparate cultures, I have a natural ability to connect subjects that other designers aren’t able to connect as easily. This leads to seeing opportunities that would stay undiscovered if you worked with someone who does not have this perspective.
I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Human Computer Interaction. Over the last decade, I’ve been applying human centered design principles to ever larger projects. I’ve worked in all aspects of the design process at some point: frontend dev, engineering, visual design, prototyping/interaction/UX, product.
