Michael Malik Jones-Robinson, but just call me Malik (there are always at least 3 other Michaels). I am the UX designer you are looking forâ¦
In case my Jedi mind trick didnât work let me tell you why:
I have a passion for creating efficient and intuitive systems to improve user experience.Â I accomplish this through thoughtful user research, and information architecture.Â My combined work experience, including five years as a special education teacher, has given me a unique opportunity to observe how people learn.Â Through this I have learned how to leverage experience and knowledge users are coming with to create a better, more intuitive, experience.Â I am excited for an opportunity to bring these skills and talents to an organization that values the user centered design process.
When I am not Designing
Before becoming a UX designer, photography was my creative outlet. I love the chance to catch the perfect moment and capture it for posterity, this is why I really enjoy street photography and event photography.
I love a good story, and video games are an incredible medium for storytelling and for exploring innovative UI.
Some of my favorite franchises are:
Metroid | Metal Gear | Portal | FIFA | Super Mario | Zelda |
I learned how to longboard 5 years ago, and have been in love with it ever since. There is something about traveling at high speeds on a small piece of wood that gives me a new level of clarity that helps me think through any problem I might be stuck on.
