Thalia Su

Bio

Hello, I'm Thalia (she/her). I am a user experience designer with four years of experience in the field of design. I am proficient in front-end web design, and I'm interested in accessibility and user research. I seek to create products that are genuinely helpful to others.

I strive to discover user needs through collaboration and Agile work methods. I have organized journey mapping sessions in the past to guide development of user flows and information architecture. I frequently iterate prototypes after receiving feedback or completing user testing.

Most of my work involves using a prototyping app like Adobe XD but I can also design graphics or code web designs.

Design Interactive

As the primary UX Designer for the Performance Augmentation team at DI, I worked extensively on a couple projects, one that focused on effective skill acquisition, and another that sought to assist users with navigation.

Sparks Magazine

Sparks is an Asian & Pacific Islander American magazine offering students APIA representation and a platform to discuss social issues. For issue no. 14, I designed for print and social media with InDesign.

Fencing Branding

For The Fencing Knights at UCF, I created social media graphics & designed their t-shirt for the 2nd annual Black & Gold competition using Photoshop.

Magical Girl

I combined knowledge from creative writing and web design to write a media analysis of the "magical girl" subgenre & customize a site using Materialize CSS’s grid & components.

Eventcrunch

I worked on a small team to create a mashup of BandsInTown & Google Maps API for a UCF course. I coded JS, PHP & SQL to validate & store user info in login, registration & profile forms.

Change the Weather

In order to better understand CSS animations, I designed a fun, weather-themed side project.
