Meet Erika Schneider, User Experience Design Graduate

Erika Schneider

From Web Design to UX Design


Erika Schneider had nearly a decade of web design experience under her belt — but wanted to complement her skills with formal training in UX design, which solves user problems through empathy, user research, prototyping, and more. She turned to GA’s 10-week, part-time User Experience Design course in Boston. It helped her transition to a UX design role at a global consulting company. “This, in combination with instructor coaching, was what helped me achieve my goal of pivoting my career. I finished the class armed with a very strong portfolio piece and presentation that I used when interviewing for UX design positions.”

Push for a Point of View


Good design is all about having a clear purpose. It’s about having a strong point of view—even if you might ruffle some feathers along the way. I chatted with people who have a strong point of view in their design — people from Google, Airbnb, Slack, Dropbox, and more. I wanted to peek inside their noggins to see what drives their decisions and informs their designs. Below are a few things I learned.

UX Design Tips From Mom


After completing my User Experience Design Immersive course at General Assembly’s Singapore campus, I tried to explain to my 90-year-old mother what I had been studying. I got schooled, instead. I explained to her the definition of UX design, and Mom proceeded to demonstrate her understanding by walking me through her use of UX strategies in everyday life.

Don’t Frustrate Users With Gaps in Your Product Experience


We’ve all experienced pain points when really good software doesn’t equate a really good experience. All too often, there’s a breakdown that occurs outside product screens, when a product or process hits the reality of the human experience or a user fails. These points of friction are frustrating to users and jeopardize your businesses. I call these gaps mode-shift friction, and it’s essential to resolve them wherever possible.
