Jaimie Teekell

I'm a UX Designer who specializes in usability, interaction design and user interface design in an Agile development environment.

About me

I'm a recent UXD master’s graduate with several years' experience creating user-centered solutions for desktop and mobile. My industry experience is in graphic design and 3D visualization. I’ve worked in a variety of environments: enterprise, non-profit, start-up and freelance. Currently I'm working with enterprise UX.

During my education at Kent State University, I’ve had the opportunity to develop strong UX theory and be mentored by industry professionals, from professors to fellow students alike. While freelancing during this time, I’ve developed a strong nose for business. I have an empathy for stakeholders I wouldn’t have earned otherwise. My portfolio might not have the exact piece you’re looking for, but I hope my passion and the quality of my work is clear.
