I'm Tanya Houseman. Friends call me "Tiki". I am advocate for user-centric experiences. I help organizations find that sweet spot where customers can find what they need when they need it, and companies can reach their business goals.
UX Design + Research
I cut my teeth in journalism -- I got to ask people questions (my favorite thing to do). That turned into a career in Marketing, and eventually, after building digital platforms, became a passion for user-centric solutions. I have experience in user research, rapid prototyping, creating visual elements for prototyping, creating and presenting findings, usability testing, icon creation and project management.
I love words and pictures. But only if they have an impact -- they have to help readers find what they're looking for, whether that be information, training, or entertainment. This also includes SEO because if your user can't find what you've written you may as well have not created it at all. Bill Gates said that content was king. I would like to amend that to "relevant content is king." This module includes my copywriting and photo editing.
I am an ENFP type of person. I have work that may be unrelated to UX and content, however, I believe the Gestalt of my work speaks to my curiosity about the world around me, my desire to connect with people and help them, and express myself. This module includes my paintings and other work, such as data visualization.
