(ah-daW-mah  OH-Jew-Kwew)
I’m a UX Designer and Web Developer based in St Louis, MO with over 5 years of experience helping ad agencies and software companies establish and refine their products. I have a passion for connecting aesthetics with function, data with empathy, and strategy with creativity. I also enjoy digital illustration and helping other designers learn best practices and understand code.

Adanma Creates

Adanma Creates is my freelance agency. I partner with professionals and creatives in St Louis, Chicago, New York and more to provide start-ups and individuals with high-quality websites and UX services.

My Process

Discovery

No matter the project, there will always be a kickoff and research phase. The specific method depends on your project needs. This could include engaging stakeholders, collecting insights from user behavior, or analyzing competitors.

Explore & Execute

I am strategic in planning out features and creating flows, which then guide me in informing the creative vision of the project. This can include mood boards, empathy maps, and of course Figma mock-ups. I take care to design and document responsive designs.

Iterate ( Sorry for the buzzword )

Once I have either collaborated with the dev team to build my designs or built them myself, I conduct UX testing to make tweets to the CSS, or go back to ‘playing’ based on user feedback to refine the experience.
