About Yael Levey
As a product design lead, I’m passionate about creating simple, digital experiences that make people’s lives better. I love listening to how people make sense of their world, understanding what makes them tick, and figuring out how to fuse the world of pixels with this user-centred knowledge.
My background is user experience design – following a user-centred design process is always at the forefront of my mind. But for me, a user experience is made up of so much more than just the usual UX disciplines – usability, information architecture, user research and interaction design – it’s also about how it moves, sounds, looks and feels, as well as how it gets put together.
So, on this blog, you’ll see a mix of everything that I put into designing digital experiences for people – covering everything including UX, UI, motion, typography, colour, research, creative facilitation, collaborative processes, and all the way back again!
I currently work at Facebook as a product design manager, but all views in this personal blog are my own and not affiliated with Facebook in any way.
Some past companies I’ve worked for include:
Outside of work, I love science fiction, photography and pub quizzes. My current pet project is designing useless but fun user interfaces for our space-faring descendants. I am also a notebook obsessive (don’t ask how many notebooks I own..!), and I adore watermelon, Dr Pepper and promarker pens.
I hope you enjoy looking around! Welcome 🙂
