You can count on me to stay curious—
not just of our users, but also of our UX processes that drive it.

Why, hello!

Ikra Javed

My name’s Ikra Javed (and here’s how to pronounce it). I had a long and winding path into UX, after graduating as a history major from a small liberal arts college. It started when I was working on the website of a professor; during this time, I also enrolled in post-graduate digital design classes, where I was first introduced to “user experience” or UX. After learning about UX principles and testing, I fell in love. The world is FULL of design that can be improved, and I truly believe that UX processes from research to end product can help make the digital world a more delightful place for all.

As much as I enjoy spending time analyzing results from user research or revising a web page based on insights gathered, I equally enjoy taking long walks outdoors either on trails or just around town.
