Trish Willard is a visual designer from Washington, DC — specializing in UI/UX design for interactive web products. She worked with organizations like aids.gov and the national cancer institute of USA to build products that educate and help people. She also occasionally writes about things like imposter syndrome and how to design better products on Medium. In this episode we talked about her journey as a designer, we talked about the details of some of the projects that she's worked on, somethings that she and her team kept in mind while designing an app to help people quit smoking, how to approach a project from the usability and ease of use stand point when redesigning the UI & UX of a product, we spoke in detail about imposter syndrome and why it's so prevalent in the design industry, we spoke about "the UX uncanny valley" which is a blog post Trish wrote about how sometimes in products lack of friction in doing a task can sometimes cause confusion to the users and how to deliberately design products that make the users feel safe and in control. Stick around till the end to hear about her cat, Loki :')
