User Experience and Web Designer

  • Location Guelph, Canada

  • Experience Not specified

I first started designing websites in 1998 and began my freelance career as I started my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Guelph in 2000. After graduating, I attended Humber College’s Web Design program in the summer of 2004 and have been working full time at a number of companies since then, while continuing my part-time freelance work. In 2010, I enrolled at the Savannah College of Art and Design to work towards my MFA degree in Interactive Design and Game Development through their e-learning program.

My breadth of experience and continuing learning has helped me to become a sought-after end to end designer and front end developer. I work with a number of companies as a contract freelancer which enables me to create everything from conceptual workflows to custom jquery banners and everything in between. Evolving out of my love for user experience design, I have developed a passion and skill for complex problem solving using design thinking. I have found success in taking this approach and applying it to wicked problems to find long term, sustainable solutions. I also love networking with like minded individuals to find productive solutions to local issues in my hometown of Guelph, Ontario.

Most recently, I was working fulltime for TribeHR designing user-friendly solutions for the world's least user-friendly field - Human Resources and I also design and build websites for small business and individuals through my company Oaktree Media.

In my spare time, I help run Music Lives, an online website and print magazine dedicated to local music in Guelph.

My real passion is in the sharing of information. I think the internet is such an amazing tool for transmitting and receiving messages of all shapes and sizes. My goal is to help the right messages meet the right people and it make it look good and be easy to use in the process. You can find out more about me at http://www.kellybaker.ca
