Stéphanie Krus

Designer / Web Developer

illustration of my professional journey

I've had many roles so far: teacher, tester, customer support representative, web designer, and software developer. I've been involved in UX Design in all of them before I even knew what UX Design was.

Strong points

I'm extremely organised, have a 'get done' attitude, love problem solving and learn fast.

Software Developer

A lot of developers are perfectly happy to code without being involved in the design or content discussion. This is not me ;-)

Customer Support for video games

I worked on Information Architecture and content while building a knowledge base for my colleagues. Gathered needs and existing information, structured it so it could be maintained efficiently, and eventually empowered both the users to resolve their issues and my colleagues to maintain our knowledge base.

Teaching

I've taught children and adults in French classes in Scotland and in Paris.

By creating my own teaching materials based on my users, ages, abilities and culture, I had to discover their specific needs, test and improve my material so they could learn effectively.

Web Designer

I've been part of various local groups (community council, allotments, parents council, reading club) and created WordPress websites for them to communicate to wider audiences.
