Professional background: Graphic Design and Print Media
Studied at Academy Xi: UX Design
Coming from a Graphic Design and Print Media background, the transition into UX Design seemed natural to Suely. After feeling instantly welcome and in safe hands, Suely committed herself to the 10-weeks full-time User Experience Design Transform course at Academy Xi.
Not long after the course ended, Suely landed herself a job as UX Designer in an amazing startup. Prior to her experience at Academy Xi, she tried to learn Human-Centred Design and Design Thinking principles by herself, but found that without people to bounce ideas off, and real-life collaboration, translating theory into practice was difficult.
