About

Aloha, I’m Brenda. I’m a product designer and web developer with a passion for designing fluid web and mobile interfaces that bring together functional and engaging user experiences. I take a user centered approach to build great visual and product design.

I have always been intrigued by great design. Whether it is a solid piece of furniture, a nice pair of sunglasses or a well-structured layout, great design has always caught my eye. The beauty, functionality and creativity that go into design are elements that inspire me to craft digital experiences. I enjoy writing clean, organized and semantic code while experimenting with typography, subtle animations and CSS tricks. I love what I do and I’m always striving to improve my design skills.

I’m currently a product designer at Centerfield, a marketing and advertising technology firm. There are many projects in the works, but some of the key projects I lead the design and implementation include an Agent Console, Workforce Management platform and IVR Script Studio application.

Fun facts about me: I'm a certified open water diver, lover of puppies, and lover of all things matcha. I was also a pharmacy technician in another life.

The objective of this project was to create a one-page responsive site that is compatible across all devices – desktop, tablet and mobile. This project ties together two things I am passionate about: good food & responsive design. I designed this project with flexbox to create a masonry grid layout (inspired by pinterest) which is based on columns that don’t have fixed height rows. I used a lightbox to showcase the images. With a responsive design approach, I disabled the lightbox on specific screen sizes and switched in a responsive navigation bar to bring together a functional user experience.

I incorporated colorful food imagery to bring out the vibrant theme of this project. I also used a hover effect on the images so that users would be inclined to click on the photos to enable the lightbox.

A black, white and gray color swatch was chosen for this project to keep the design minimalistic against the vibrant colors of the images.
