Hello! I am Robert Harris, and I am a UI/UX Designer based in Brooklyn, NY with an extensive background in UI development and Web production. I have worked with large brands helping their business teams and designers deliver great products for their customers.
My love for design began as a child where I would sketch for hours, and I developed a love for drawing characters and creating figures with clay. I was always trying to create something new and interesting. That creative interest evolved into music, video and photography, so when the Web became ubiquitous it was obvious how tech, business and creative work would merge into an interactive experience. I did not realize it at the time but that was my first insight into the world of user experience.
My degree in business trained me to think about marketing, management, statistics, and the challenges involved with succeeding in business. I learned to develop websites, and then I learned online video production, photography and how to translate designs into code. At Showtime I was tasked with editing clips weekly for our series shows using Final Cut Pro and other video processing/streaming tools. I have also taken a course in editing using Premier. But, with these skills, I would always find myself asking “why?”. UX Design methodologies, skills, thinking, language and processes has provided me with the approach to get those answers and create greater questions.
I have worked for brands such as KPMG, Pershing, Wall Street Journal (wsj.com), Showtime and many others and delivered great products for their customers and businesses.
