Jaimie Teekell

I'm a designer with an M.S. in UXD looking for full-time employment in user-centered design.

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: corporate, non-profit, start-up and freelance.

I love working with tech, but I love helping people too. I pivoted to UXD as soon as I could. 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’ve 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.
