About Christian Baptiste
A little about me: I have been running successful design projects for over 20 years. Both as a UX/Interaction production designer and as a design lead. I have lead teams to create some amazing and delightful applications. Many are used by fortune 500 companies.
I bring a complete set of design experiences; UX design, interaction design, user research, information design, visual design and motion design.
I bring special skills in both conducting and teaching designers how to facilitate design thinking techniques that bring together customers, product teams, engineering, executives, and sales. These creative problem solving and communication techniques have proven to be enormously successful in fully understanding customer needs resulting in the creation of happy customers, company wide alignment, and a significant reduction of the cost and time to production. These techniques are responsible for creating innovative ideas and many unexpected opportunities.
My teams and I have created apps that have been optimized for all mediums. Web based multi tenant collaboration software, Native iOS and Android, responsive mobile web for both consumer and large data enterprises. My objectives remain the same; Make it easy, intuitive, fast, effective, helpful and delightful. Make the user feel like a superstar.
My contributions to this industry have given me special recognition by Adobe, IBM, Curious Labs, Siebel, Roxio, Target, Macy's, ABB and many others as one of technologies top UX (User Experience) experts.
I scrutinize and problem solve everything and I teach others how to see things that are often overlooked, ignored or not yet recognized. I practice and teach creative thinking techniques that extract the most innovative ideas that make the user experiences great. I really enjoy mentoring designers and inspiring other colleagues to motivate them to create work beyond their expectations.
The best thing is I love what I do, and I grow more passionate every day.
