Adriana Corona presented on Wednesday August 23rd about UX as Evidence-Based, Human Centered Design. To design for human experiences, you need to fall in love with solving a human problem. Designing a solution is not the hard part; the hard part is staying emotionally detached from your solution. Adriana discussed how she accomplishes this: by identifying (and falling in love with solving) a problem, iterating on several solutions, and letting the evidence steer your design decisions toward an ultimate goal.
Adriana is the Senior Experience Designer in User Experience & Digital Strategy in ITS Campus Community Technologies. She received her Master of Science in Human-Technology Interaction at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. Prior to that she worked as a product management consultant for a data science firm and helped them streamline their web product development process. Adriana has an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Yale University.
