About me – Tania Richardson

I craft digital experiences that not only users love, but meet engineering and business needs. From UX research all the way through to front-end implementation.

Tania Richardson Freelance product designer. Woman looking to the side with laptop.

I have a background in visual communication, completing my degree at Auckland University. Since then I’ve designed user interfaces for mobile, tablet and web apps; built websites for big name brands & crafted award winning marketing campaigns.

I’m passionate about tackling difficult, user centric issues; and learning about new industries where tech is changing the world, one deployment at a time.

My skillset lies in UX research, then building out a UI that is intuitive, fresh and backed by data as much as possible; ensuring that it’s not only usable, but meets WCAG accessibility guidelines.

I work with teams to provide the cross-over from design to development, providing style guides and front-end code to start building great products. Each project starts with user research – interviewing and gathering quantitative and qualitative data that then informs my designs.

I love creating design systems that scale – ensuring that your user experience remains consistent, whilst ensuring efficiency within design teams.  Here’s a selection of what I’ve worked on over the years.

Outside of work I enjoy landscape photography, attempting to surf and hanging out with my little one.  I work remotely from Brisbane, Australia and occasionally from Auckland, New Zealand.
