Talent Spotlight! – Self Motivated Designer with an Unquenchable Thirst for Knowledge

Pete is an interactive and user interface designer who is as complex as his designs. With a background in architecture, design and even finance, he’s a big picture guy who enjoys using design to solve problems and improve lives. His projects have ranged from creative direction and design for a suite of financial market trading systems to an animated :30 spot for a transportation client that aired on the 1,200 square-foot Panasonic AstroVision screen inTimes Square.

Pete embraces the opportunity to create, contribute, and to continually push the envelope in his work. He stays grounded and understands the importance of the human element behind each project, “Because, after all, this stuff is designed for other people to use, to help improve their lives, to solve problems. And the more I know about why people do what they do, the better I can do what I do.”

Sample from Pete's portfolio

A highly sought after designer with an impressive resume, Pete specializes in user interface design, information design, information architecture and user flow and website design, all with a distinctly branded slant to it. He prefers being a consultant and finds that working on only one project at a time can get stale. He enjoys that smaller clients often lend the freedom to look at more pieces of the pie, enabling him to see the big picture, while larger clients frequently offer innovative, cutting-edge projects. After CM Access Lead Career Advocate Jamie met Pete at a networking event, he was eager to see the clients and projects she could offer him. Pete’s latest assignment with CM Access was designing prototypes for a mobile application for retailers that push deals to users.

UI Design & UX Design– Stop Blurring the Lines

For hiring managers who need talented creative, marketing and interactive professionals, it’s essential to understand what you’re looking for before you start the search – especially when it comes to specialized skills such as interface design and user experience design.

By not clearly defining these positions, managers are setting themselves up for an unproductive (and expensive) recruiting process.  Educating yourself on the differences, and sometimes overlap of each role is key to finding the candidate you truly need, as well as a team that will work well together.

Here’s the 411 on UX and UI design –

  • UX (User Experience) design deals with the overall subjective experience associated with the use of a product or service.
  • UI (User Interface) design deals with the specific user interface(s) of a product or service. The UI can be a component of UX, but many user experiences don’t have UIs. The design of a UI will be heavily informed by the UX design. The UX design will be less informed by the UI.
