Mac Galeano
I started college as a fine artist but soon moved to the digital (dark) side. I began to improve my skills at coding while simultaneously painting and designing. I found work designing and coding websites while at Utah State University. When I graduated I found even more opportunities in web design and consequently spent the next 6 years heavily involved in UX and UI design. I’ve worked on web teams at Interbank FX, Saxton Horne Advertising, Mighty Clever and modern8, where I had the opportunity to develop several strategic processes.

My Capabilities

 

Due to my preference for small teams, I have been able to gather experience in a number of UX Tasks.  Depending on the project, I can fill in as either a UI designer, contributing to the visual design, or I can even provide frontend support. Some of my favorite tasks are part of the planning process. I enjoy research and organizing content into practical, digestible portions. To read more about my UX Tasks, visit my blog or read about UX Plans.

My Experience

 

2015

Senior UX  Designer + Consultant

I ventured out on my own at the end of 2014 and have honed in my UX skills.  I have worked with several startups, several apps and many more websites. My experience has led me to realize a dire need for UX management and I have been developing a program that will help teams get the most out of their UX efforts.

UX Designer + Brand Strategist

I began working for modern8 and, once again, found myself overseeing web projects for the agency. I continued to develop my own web process and refine my UX skills but also added brand strategy to my repertoire. I was heavily involved in the branding or rebranding of many large companies on a national level.
