Hello!

My name is James--Aldrin if you know too many Jameses. I’m a creative at heart with a love for utility. I have experience in customer service, business admin, and design that have culminated into what is now my unique background.

I'm currently working on improving the online experience for Hopia Like It! and Arch Node Agency. You can see my skills and my design process below.

My Process

Below is the process I’ve developed and is primarily influenced by design-thinking methodology and may slightly change according to the project, allotted time, and budget.

INTRO/DISCOVERY/RESEARCH

While understanding our "users" are undoubtedly important, I emphasize that understanding of the Business and its Landscape are equally important. That is, I conduct research on the business, the user or Customer, and the landscape the business operates in.

SYNTHESIS

Once I've collected sufficient data, I start making sense of it. Through methods such as storyboards and persona creation, I take a look at where these three factors might intersect and how.

IDEATION/TEST

One solution isn't enough. It's important to look at a problem and present different solutions to test.

ITERATION

After testing, iterate and test again, as needed or budgeted.

DEVELOP/OUTPUT READY

In print design, the final file must be prepared according to the printer's requirements. Similarly, the final iterated design must be prepared to be understood by a developer.
