Elana Valentin, UX/UI designer of two years and running.
Highly adaptable, organized, and focused are just some of the traits that drive my quality-over-quantity approach to projects. I am an overachiever by fault, have an eye for subverting expectations to keep things fresh, and tune my quiet personality toward being keen listener because I think you can learn something from everyone.
My aesthetic? Sleek, immersive, and popping with selective color choices.
Portfolio and Skills
(of art, education, etc.) using more than one medium of expression or communication. "a multiamedia art form"
(of computer applications) incorporating audio and video, especially interactively.
The beauty of my work is that all of my skills overlap. Constantly. But for the sake of brevity, these are the most prominent examples.
It's a given that websites should be functional. Web designers know that their sites do not have the luxury of a customer's patience. On the other hand, attracting a customer to the site is also crucial to the success of a site, and the longevity of the visit.
Aesthetics are also a blend of form and subjectivity, believe it or not. It's like moulding clay or sculpting ivory into a statue, and transforming raw materials (or in this case code) into a piece with personality. Something that evokes the very life we adore. Similarly, it is important to consider and then highlight multiple dimensions of the product in order to generate that more organic personality for the user. The details become more important: use of color, when to juxtapose elements, simulating texture, how to break the rules of design to provoke intrigue and memorability. Aesthetics become the conversation between your product, your brand, and the user - an experience underestimated by designers every day.
