Liz Wells is a user experience designer currently working at Stink Studios in Brooklyn, New York. At Stink, Liz is responsible for all phases of the UX process, from concepting and information architecture to wireframing and prototyping. Her UX process begins with sketching as a way of stepping back from her computer to just focus on the experience and user goals at hand. Liz advises visual designers and developers throughout the lifecycle of a project to help them meet Stink’s high standards for usability and delight. While at Stink Studios, Liz has worked with a wide range of clients, including Google, Spotify, VICELAND, Twitter, Chevrolet, Condé Nast, Facebook, Sloan Kettering and ZocDoc.
Her work has been recognized by The One Show, The Webbys, Awwwards, FWA, Communication Arts, Cannes Lions and D&AD, and featured in The Next Web, The Verge, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, USA Today, The New York Times, Buzzfeed, Adweek and Engadget. Her work on the Lynching in America project was showcased in an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum in summer 2017 entitled The Legacy of Lynching: Confronting Racial Terror in America.
Liz graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2015 with a BFA in Graphic Design and her foundation in design thinking informs her work as a UX designer. This fall, she will be teaching a workshop at Rochester Institute of Technology School of Design called “There Is No Process - Lessons in Building User-Centered Experiences.” This workshop will touch on her on-going work at Stink Studios and the development of her personal UX process.
