About This Class

I’m a New York based UX / UI designer with more than 8 years of design experience working on product teams for growing startups and major brands like Nike, Artsy, and Skillshare. Throughout my career I’ve made improving my design process a major focus for working better with teams, better with clients, and producing consistently higher quality work in less time.

This class outlines one of the secrets weapons in my UX design process, The Design Spec Doc. This simple document ensures a higher level of team alignment around goals, requirements, and best practice examples. I promise that creating this quick document will put you in a better starting position to begin your designs, and you’ll get to a better design outcome with fewer revisions.
