I am a 22 year old UX Designer and Illustrator, graduating from Belfast School of Art in Interaction Design. During my time in the Interaction Design course I have learned many new skills which I now apply to my work. I have also developed a great interest in user experience design which is one of my main focuses in my work now. Coming from a graphic design and illustration background I have gained more knowledge about the process and cause behind each design focusing on creating the best experience with the design.
For my final major I decided to work on a project that is very close to my heart. Aura has been inspired by personal experiences. I have been struggling with epilepsy for 15 years. I have always felt that there is a lot of stigma around the topic as not many people understand what epilepsy exactly is. My goal for this project is to bring awareness to the topic of epilepsy and help people who struggle with epilepsy in everyday life.
