I'M

Katie Hicks.

UX/UI DESIGNER, USER RESEARCHER & DATA LOVER

I have always loved people and technology, which is why I love being a part of the UX world. Whether it's data from user research or analytics and big data, I like discovering disconnects between users and technology and coming up with creative solutions to make the technology usable, useful and delightful. 

 

Good design is a beautiful thing. But when you put human needs behind good designs, that’s when the real magic starts to happen.
