Summary

I am passionate about creating beautiful, usable, innovative work for the largest possible breadth of clients and companies. Most recently I built wireframes and prototypes for financial clients such as Chase, Fidelity, Wells Fargo in an agency setting. The next company or project I would work for would be innovation-driven, with persistent UX involvement within a creative team, where out-of-the-box thinking is almost a requirement, and where the leadership is extremely pro-active, ready to get their hands dirty with their teams. I use Sketch and Adobe CC masterfully and am skilled in Agile development methodologies and task management. I enjoy collaborating with product owners, developers, as well as other designers, thriving when working in open, experimental and collaborative environments. See work at: http://roussina.com.
