Katie Murray User Experience

Gjogv, Faroe Islands

Curious, free spirit...

Chicagoan by birth, Hoosier by fate. From Milwaukee through Illinois into "The Region" of Indiana, the Midwest is my first home. I love to travel & explore far and wide as often as possible.

I've lived among the Bears, the Cheeseheads & Roman Ruins, now settled next to the Rocky Mountains in Denver. With a cat, a dog & a husband, I'm a designer-frontend hybrid who is fueled by coffee, sunshine & lemon bread.

Texel Island, Holland

...with a passion for design

With over 8 years of experience in design & 5 years specializing in responsive dev, exploring UX & design solutions for customer brands & sites is at the core of what I do. I value the collaboration & teamwork that goes into the creative process.

As a natural communicator (read: likes to talk), I work with teams & clients on all levels, up to & including creative team management. I work throughout the discovery & design phases to unify understanding, identify risks & support success for everyone involved.
