Trey Banks - UX Designer

People ignore design that ignores people

It is vital to never fall in love with your own designs and ideas. It is vital to pay attention to the data and more over to create the story that needs to be told. Tell the story over creating "perfect" designs. Let's take care of the user and the business by growing the value of UX and Product Design everyday.

A bit about me

Bio

Trey Banks

I am a UX Designer with over 10 years of design experience. I tend to be quiet about my capabilities and achievements, but over the years have seen the need for more passionate UX Designers to emerge. I like to nurture the growth of UX designers and teams

to bring designers continuity in the business. Staying current and staying a student constantly keeps me challenged and it drives my passions forward to maximize my value as an User Experience professional.

I prefer to lean on the business model and research my approach
to solidify the design. It is important to me to ensure that the measurements and goals are incorporated first before the design can digitally be fleshed out to better the business strength and shelf life of the product.
