Full-Stack UXer > About
I've studied and built websites since 1996, and as a copywriter, advised clients on usability before the term "UX" was coined. After all, a headline is "user experience." A page layout is a "user interface." Like the FTC, I hold that the important thing is not what the marketer says, but what the reader percieves. I also understand the use of humor and the importance of a conversational tone. All these things — and many more — translate directly to UX Design.
In those days, I coined my own phrase, "Common Sense, Uncommonly Presented." That's how I wanted the reader to feel: as if the message is simple common sense. A gut feeling. A no-brainer.
Now as a User Advocate, I continue to focus on satisfying the user's wants, needs and interests. With this mindset come a full range of skills and sensibilities necessary to understanding User Experience and guiding the user to act instinctively. To get people, instead, thinking about your message.
I offer a wide range of services, almost all of them related to User Experience in some way. See the full list at my other site, Rensch.com.
