I design simple life and make things easier.



 

In Short
My name is Pruek from Bangkok, Thailand. I am a UX designer. I do user research and conduct usability tests. I design user interfaces and make prototypes for websites, mobile applications, and devices. I have experienced working across several disciplines: graphic design, art direction, web programming, and concept development. In my free time, I play piano, take photos, and travel.

My work process

At the moment, I am a UX designer at Morphosis. I am in charge of:

  • doing user research and workshops
  • designing information architecture (content inventories, sitemaps, wireframes, user flows)
  • prototyping and testing mobile applications and websites
  • managing projects and coordinating with clients

Feel free to send me a message or email me: pruek.lk[at]yahoo.com.

 

My Purpose
I pursue better interaction design and inclusive design to create better experience. I would like to create intuitive and understandable design that everyone can access and use it easily. My inspiration comes from when I see people struggle using new technologies and devices. Regardless all design trends, I believe that there is a better way to make design more approachable and useable to everyone.

 

Testimonial
“Pruek is highly competent in analysing and designing user experience solutions. At Match2One he was part in designing great and easy to use solutions for advanced advertising technology as well as taking part in usability tests and research. Pruek is a great asset to any team.” (Markus Thyberg, User Experience Manager at Match2One)
