Bree Brudnicki

Hey, I'm Bree, a passionate user advocate and product designer. I engage users from the beginning of the process through user research and keep my users in mind as I design flows, interactions, and world-class, pixel perfect mockups. I involve users as often as possible to get incremental feedback which all comes together to create simple and intuitive experiences.

Resume

My education and job experiences gives me well rounded skills that enable me to do great work. Because of my development background I am able to communicate with developers well ensuring that I am designing something that is technically feasible. I like to push boundaries to make sure I am providing the best user experience possible.

I take a concept through design and into production by doing user research, creating flow diagrams, wireframes, mockups, and prototypes. I engage the user along this process whenever possible to get incremental feedback. Getting feedback early saves time and money because it prevents me from having to go back and fix things later - I get them right the first time. Before passing off to developers I conduct usability sessions and redesign as necessary. Once the design and experience is perfectly polished I hand off my work to developers so they can bring it to life.
