Shhh. . . It's a top secret!

I've worked on a confidential Canadian nationwide project. While I cannot publish it due to signing a non-disclosure agreement, the lessons I learned and my high-level overview are well worth sharing.

UX Process

Focusing on figuring out the right problem to solve is the core of my UX process. From research to testing the prototypes, I always aim to focus on a user-centric approach through iterative sprints.

Whether it's facilitating workshops or getting hands-on, working collaboratively allows me to discover the most suitable principles for each project. I'm flexible enough to adapt the UX process when the project calls for it.
