Shawn Amaro

Lead UX Designer

 

Hi, I'm Shawn...

I’m a UX Designer who focuses on visual design and strategy. I bring value to people’s lives by removing unnecessary frustrations from an experience. 


You could describe my process as “Design Thinking on a sprint schedule.” Thanks to over 10 years of experience, I don't have to start a project with a “blank page.” At my core, I am someone who loves humanizing technology and genuinely cares about having a positive impact.

Below are selected portfolio samples of my most recent work. Please reach out to me for the full offline portfolio. 

 

Portfolio & Case Studies

Information Architecture: Smooth Navigation

What if you could only subtract to solve problems? This is a question I ask when doing Information Architecture refreshes. The Challenge: Admins were experiencing information overload from their site's contextual proliferation, causing delays in candidate applications.

Defining an Experience

Defining the user experience for this high-end construction company would prove to be a major overhaul. While the foundation for Rhino Construction's content remains strong, their web presence isn't up to code. Can I turn this 1980's fixer-upper into their dream site?
