MY NAME IS RUAIRI AND I DESIGN THE USER EXPERIENCE

UX Designer, Software Development Engineer in Test, Agile SCRUM evangelist and Fitness Coach

I am passionate about the user and the client. From helping them get fit and healthy, to creating a great user experience in every aspect of life. I have helped people with their fitness.


I believe in the process of design, whether that is the process of designing and developing a piece of software or taking on a fitness challenge. The process of creation and design will lead to a great finished product and a great user experience.

True UX and design can be seen in every aspect of life.

DESIGN BELIEF

Through my years of Testing software, I have come to realize and appreciate the value in the Empathetic Testing and the Human-Centred Design approach.

People should always be put first, and things should be simple for people to use. If something is not simple to use, then it becomes a chore and less likely that someone will want to use it again. I strongly believe that simplicity is key. Through simplicity design, we can create simplicity in action. The less someone has to think about doing something the more they will do it. 

Through Human-Centred design, we can create something that will not only encourage someone to return but also allow them to return through simplicity.

We are working on this, more to come

Who am I

With 10 years as a Software Test Engineer in both Manual and Automation my main focus has always been “Is this good for the user” and not just does it work. I have always had a passion in life for helping others, from working behind the counter in a local DIY store advising people the best approach to painting a wall to ensuring that a button not only does what its meant to, but also that it looks and feels right. Prior to that I served my time as a carpenter and shop fitter where I would need to design a solution to make things work when building a stud-wall or making a gate from scratch to ensure not only does it stand up, but also does it do its job right and even how does it look.

In design, my approach isn’t just does this solve a problem or does it fit with its surroundings but also does it communicate to the user its intent and does it feel right. A user should never need to think about what they are doing when something is designed right, the action that needs to be performed by the user should be instinctual.

Because I believe this, and because of the way I look at the world around me, I believe that if something isn’t simple then its not done right. Things should never be complicated.

Simplicity in design is instinct by nature, but Simplicity for the sake of it is lost meaning.

I am a designer, I am a user, I am a coach, I am a human.
