ZACHARY SMITH UX/UI DESIGNER
3015 Sheffield Avenue, Oakland, CA, 94602 | (510) 384-0448|
I'm a San Francisco based User Experience designer driven by my love for design and
connecting with users. I thoroughly enjoy problem solving, applying design technique and user
research to reach intuitive and beautiful solutions to user difficulties. My previous experience
as a youth swim coach helped me define what is important to me in a career; my love for
connecting with people and using my expertise to help and give back. I strive every day to apply
these beliefs to my role as a User Experience Designer. When I'm not doing design work, I enjoy
swimming, hiking and consider myself a gaming enthusiast.
My design philosophy is driven by my love for collaborative thinking and becoming
immersed in a product, bouncing ideas off of team mates and maintaining a positive and open
minded approach to my work, I consider a willingness to try ideas and solutions that make us
uncomfortable extremely important.
