A little bit about me
Thanks for visiting my web site! My name is Anton. I’ve designed and built consumer facing and enterprise solutions as a consultant and a corporate professional for over 20 years. During this time, I delivered highly successful solutions that delight stakeholders and users. As a user experience designer, I am focused on the end user experience. I fully believe in the design thinking approach, which emphasizes team collaboration, research, iterating ideas, prototyping and testing with users to design great user experiences.
I’ve held different roles in the design spectrum, including the role of a creative technical manager, web designer consultant, UX Researcher and Strategist, a “UX Team of One”, an Interactive Designer, Visual Designer, and Prototyper. I enjoy the challenge to delight business owners and end-users by making their experiences simple and usable, especially when I can design innovative new approaches.
I am always learning and absorbing things around me. I further studied UX Design (General Assembly) and Graphic Design principals, and continue to attend many workshops & meetups. I’m always thinking of better user experiences in the things I see every day (not just the web). Mentoring others, whether it’s stakeholders, product owners, other co-workers and clients, to build better understanding is important to me as well.
In my personal time, I enjoy quite a bit of reading, traveling (hiking/kayaking/sailing), pencil drawing, digital art, and have spent much of my life being a songwriter, performer, and music producer. I’ve produced several albums and music projects and released two CDs of my own original music. See antonroolaart.com.
