I want those I'm working with to understand my process, the value of my skills and how my process is similar/different from other disciplines. I promote human-centered design frameworks (double-diamonds, loops, fuzzy front ends). My process follows the process of research and discovery, synthesis and definition, iteratively prototyping and testing and guiding implementation.
One technique in the research process I believe is incredibly valuable is becoming the user. I find there are nuances and subtleties that can go unnoticed or left unsaid in observations and interviews. As the user you notice the little movements, you feel the emotions of embarrassment, frustration or joy that uncovers further insights.
Below are additional photos and examples of my work across different phases of the design process.
