ABOUT

I am Paula Kaminska, an award-winning UX designer with over 15 years of experience.

I wanted to be a film maker, hidden behind the scenes, actively telling stories and taking people on a journey that may change their life. IT however had better prospects and my pragmatism led me in that direction. I couldn’t abandon however my fascination with human experiences. Therefore during my six year long IT course at the university I managed to complete two years of off-track psychological modules.

I still remember my dad advising me to stop distracting myself with psychology and focus on IT – to do one thing and do it very very well. Partially conflicted I disregarded his advice. This choice made sense to me a couple of years later when it came to writing a dissertation for my first degree. One of the books by Jakob Nielsen changed it all – I discovered that Human-Computer Interaction is the field that lies exactly between IT and psychology. From that very moment I felt the calling to become a User Experience Designer. I simply knew that UX is going to be the future, long before the job title has been coined.

Today, over a decade later, I offer a proven ability to prototype and design to best UX/UI practices, conduct usability testing and other data-driven validations. I can lead UX activities within agile and waterfall environments both as a designer and as a manager. Having worked with various startups in various industries I can quickly understand any business, product, team dynamics.

I am very confident of my goals and very dedicated to achieving them. I take initiative to identify problems and formulate solutions that are right on point. I have strong communication skills and can easily inspire respect and cooperation in teammates. Check for yourself – I am both a team player and a self-starter who will bring you value from day one.
