Mauricio Perez

Hi I'm Mauricio Perez, creative and user experience specialist

Armed with practical design knowledge since 1994, I have worked overseas and achieved recognition for my work in both Sydney and London. During this time, my experience in this communication field as Creative and Art Director has provided me with a valuable approach to researching and delivering user engagement for every project. My focus into UCD (User-Centric-Design) since 2010 has focussed my design strategy and research skills to approach any project with a UX (User Experience) practice. This UX practice is a fine balance between users needs, business requirements within technical parameters. The strategy in the past for delivering award-winning design within a clients brief has been evolved into a UX practice that not only meets but exceeds the primary user needs for function to a more engaging experience that takes into account the users context. (How are they feeling, what they are doing and how much they can learn when interfacing with the product / service). In addition to these personal skills, I have listened to, managed and mentored small teams of designers and developers to help them develop their career potential. I am a firm believer in this empowering approach as I have seen this bringing out the true strengths in individuals within a team structure. This has proved paramount for promoting continual improvement and a culture of innovation, excellence and accountability in social structures. I admit to an unhealthy love of good coffee, dark chocolate, and organising friendly soccer / football matches regularly.

UX Designer, WCMS at Australian Broadcasting Corporation

June 2013

A fantastic opportunity in shaping a Web Content Management System (WCMS) for the future ABC online properties. By collaborating with the WCMS product team on researching and developing product requirements, we articulated what would be built, via concept maps wireframes, prototypes and UX/IA specifications. Within this exciting fixed period and working in an agile environment (Note the small "a" in agile) we liaised with the wider UX Group within all ABC properties and aligned design rationale to the team and senior management, identifying and balancing user needs and internal stakeholder needs. The end result would prove to be a responsive mobile framework of adaptive design patterns that would accommodate various user device types and content managers needs in a beautiful and meaningful way.
