Meet Thays, our UX/Web Designer at Human Digital
Tell us about yourself and your background
I've always had a passion for creativity and that became stronger when I first started freelancing when I was 19, that was the time when I first got into Design, starting with User Research for a Mobile App and, later on, I was designing interfaces.
In 2019, I applied to a Bachelor of Design part-time at WINTEC already knowing the direction I would go and the career I wanted to pursue. In the meantime, my first year was all about studying and freelancing. I was lucky enough to get to work with some great clients from Canada, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand with a highlight to a project created for Australian Councils to solve their time management problem. Later on, I worked as a UX/UI Designer for an overseas fintech creating solutions from the early start. Now focusing on UX and Web Design at Human Digital, I create websites for a range of clients, from the concept to the final solution including solutions to improve our customers experience aligned with their business needs and implement their branding across the web as well as sitemaps, user journey, interaction and interface design.
What are the things you truly love about what you do?
The value of design as a strategic, vital component for business growth can transform business. I believe that we should love the problems we face as part of the design process, as that is a potential point to come up with great outcomes. I also love working with a range of clients from different fields and get to know people across the globe.
What made you want to join Human Digital?
I always dreamed about working in a user-centred company along with other designers, where we have the chance to offer a different range of services to fit into our client’s business, how we approach the problems collaboratively with a lot of research focused on user experience and pain points to create a consistent solution.
What do you like the most about working here?
We have a safe environment where questions and design critiques are part of our culture and everyone’s voice is heard. I love working with people that inspires me every day and encourage the team to come up with great ideas, as ideas can come from anyone in any role.
Where do you find inspiration?
Inspiration can come from anywhere! Having contact with other designers in our community always keeps me inspired. Graphic Design work is also a bonus to train my brain to think outside of the box and having ideas for a different range of products like bookbinding, publication, type and every piece of material I can bring to shape.
