OUT IN TECH SLACK ON TUESDAY I was incredibly excited when you posted that Lex was looking for a Product Designer on Out in Tech. As a Product and Visual Designer with a history in immersive theatre design, I love creating discoverable spaces that come to life through collaborative and iterative processes. Using the combination of my background with my digital design skills, I create compelling immersive digital spaces that guide users easily and comfortably through interfaces. I’ve been an avid follower (and participant) of Lex since your Instagram Personals days, and I have never felt so welcome or included in an online dating space.

Y LEX?

The lofi simplicity of Lex is what drew me in initially, and kept me scrolling. Rather than the traditional video game-like experience of other apps, Lex gave me an insight into a person. As a queer woman, Lex spoke to my endless, maybe stereotypical, desire to learn more about people and was so much more enticing to imagine the life of the person I was talking to based on a short ad. Andrew Bird’s Fake Palindromes (seriously - give it a listen) was my first insight into what a personals ad was, and Lex was my introduction to what it could be.

Y ME?

I am a firm believer in “how can we make this happen?” and I am quick to iterate with feedback to make the best product possible. I challenge my initial assumptions and am the kind of person who always says yes to experimentation and trying new things. If you are looking for someone who thinks outside the box, can manage multiple priorities and burning deadlines with a level head, and who thrives in a high pressure environment while remaining a sounding board for the team, that's me!

COMMUNITY 4 ALL

I’ve been recently learning about accessibility and how I can create products for everyone. Empathy and trust are my biggest personal design principles, and I strive for all my products to be human driven and user first. I have experience working with users of all levels of expertise, making sure that everyone that interacts with a product feels supported. For example, when designing a product that would be used by small business owners, my team and I interviewed users from ages 24 - 70 to make sure that less tech savvy users felt comfortable using the product but those that were more familiar did not feel unsupported by too simple a product. For that product, my team and I made sure that we met WCAG 2.1 AAA guidelines and that our design system was set to evolve and grow as guidelines changed.
