Illustration skills

Visual design sensibilities will set apart a UX team.

With visual design in my blood, I choose to frequently generate new illustrations and add them to my Getty Images and iStock portfolios.

An illustration sample includes isometric people using devices
An illustration sample includes a lot filled with electric vehicles
An illustration sample includes people and equipment associated with oncology

This challenges my sense of color, composition, and visual storytelling — and helps improve my fluency within the design tool.

By observing which images are popular with customers, I make data-based decisions on future topics, keywords, and visual approaches.

As an added benefit, I have used illustrations when presenting research findings — driving interest in UX team activities.
