Alumni Story: Building a Golden User Experience

UX Design Immersive Graduates

For years, Chelsea Nicholson and Vanessa Stofenmacher (User Experience Design Immersive, Los Angeles) felt that jewelry simply wasn’t for them. They were tired of designer price markups and confused by misleading product descriptions. After meeting as students in General Assembly’s User Experience Design Immersive course in Los Angeles, they founded their own company, Vrai and Oro, to sell the jewelry they wanted to wear themselves. 

“Our entire company was founded through the user experience,” says Nicholson, who thought UX would be a strong complement to her business marketing education. Similarly Stofenmacher, previously a startup founder and creative director, wanted more insight into the brand’s user experience. “Every decision we make is based around how it will affect our customers, so having technical education in that domain has influenced almost every area of our brand.”

Since launching, the company has been featured in Vogue, Forbes, and more, and Stofenmacher landed a spot on Forbes’ 2017 30 Under 30 list. Nicholson credits GA’s global network with helping the women make connections and uncover company growth opportunities. “We met more people than we could have ever imagined through events and the entire GA community,” she says.

Affinity Mapping

When you need to make sense of a large amount of information — after a team brainstorm or a user research data dump — turn to affinity mapping. This technique is used to organize terms and ideas by grouping them with related concepts, which helps give shape to your team’s design.

Card Sorting

Similar to affinity mapping, card sorting is a research method that helps you understand users’ expectations and how they categorize your content. Once participants organize a set of topics on cards into categories, you’re able to better build a more effective and intuitive digital experience.

Information Architecture

Information architecture — or IA — is the structuring and organizing of a website or app’s content in order to boost usability. Effective IA enables users to easily and intuitively navigate to exactly where they want to go, no matter where they are on the site.

Prototyping Tools

InVision, Axure, and Balsamiq are all examples of industry-standard prototyping tools that can help you bring your design to life before building begins. These programs let you see concepts in action with clickable prototypes and helps teams pinpoint areas that require improvement to improve on before the development process.

Responsive Design

With various devices and screen sizes available, responsive design is key to creating a seamless user experience — no matter where you view it. From load time to targeted messaging, it allows for the optimal interface and experience across multiple platforms and makes site maintenance easier over time.

Service Design

Service design focuses on creating a service — such as meal delivery or checking in for a flight — that aligns with its users’ needs. It incorporates both what the user sees (the front stage) and the behind-the-scenes action that makes a product tick (the back stage).


In user experience design, usability refers to how easy a digital product is to learn and navigate. When true usability is achieved, people are able to find exactly what they need on a website or app, avoiding errors and hiccups along the way.

User & Usability Testing

User and usability testing ensures a website or app will run smoothly before it even launches. User testing focuses on an individual or group’s feedback on the website or app, while usability testing offers quantitative data that helps target problem areas that hinder the experience.
