Asigra was my first “real world experience”
Asigra was the first UX job I’ve had that wasn’t just freelance work and I learned a lot in my time there. Unfortunately because of an NDA I can’t show any of the work that I did for them so the video above is a rough draft of a product reveal I made from scratch. Starting with making Photoshop to make high fidelity mock-ups and ending with After Effects to animate it.
During my time at Asigra I wore many hats and had a lot of responsibilities. I was hired for UX but when they found out I was good at animation they also had me do that as well which I was pretty happy about. My main projects included:
- Conception of and user research for a new application that I later pitched to the Vice President and it was immediately put into development
- Reorganization of the UI for their main application to increase usability as well as aesthetics
- The creation of a heuristic analysis document that is being used to improve usability with their Network Operating Center
- Responsiveness testing and mock-ups of the Asigra Management Console (a new web app designed to be able to control all of the Asigra products)
- Product reveal videos
It was a lot of work and I was constantly working with people from different teams (managers, developers, designers and business analysts) but it was definitely an experience that has taught me a lot.
