Why do you want to be OpenIDEO's Visual and User Experience Designer?

First and foremost, I believe in openIDEO's mission. Although I've been following openIDEO for years, I've been a passive observer up to this point. Although my design experience has centered around commercial healthcare products, I've been looking for the opportunity to design for communities. I'm looking for my next role and I'd love to get involved in supporting this active global community and building the platform to activate it's energy.

How many years of experience do you have?

  • Less than 3 years of experience

How did you hear about this challenge?

On the OpenIDEO site.

What did you learn when developing the deliverables in response to the design brief?

As with many of my projects, I started this one by sending out a survey through social media to ask people about how they perceived "Diversity" and "Inclusion." One respondent who is deaf had a different understanding of the word "Inclusion" that my non-deaf respondents. I was reminded that community can be defined by many different things.
