Consultant Graphic Designer
Sep 2014 - Present (7 years)
As Consultant Graphic Designer, I focus on user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design for healthcare web applications. I work along side business analysts (BA), subject matter experts (SMEs), and the business owner to gather requirements.
I collaborate with the web development team to understand the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches. Then I design solutions that meet the needs of the business and the day-to-day users of the application.
Once approved, I provide responsive design, working along side the web application development team in a Visual Studio, .net, agile environment to deliver the web application product.
Other responsibilities are to provide high quality, brand-centered designs and creative direction to various departments like marketing, business operations, and architecture as needed. Parallon is part of a Fortune 100 company, Healthcare Corporation of America (HCA).
