George Engelbeck

User Interface Researcher/Designer

Summary

My focus is user-centered design and designing for customer success. I know how to quickly understand the tasks, needs, and desires users and stakeholders and translate this understanding into requirements and designs. For me the joy of design comes when the user experience becomes simple and seamless: The experience is reduced to the flow between users and what they wish to accomplish.

I have conducted user research, designed, and delivered multiple releases of applications at Microsoft, Cisco, ActiveVoice, Boeing, and US WEST Advanced Technologies. I have led user interface and UX research teams and have worked as a member of central user experience groups, development teams, and program management teams.

I have designed user interfaces for desktops, web, interactive television, and mobile phones. The products I have worked on have won industry awards have succeeded in the marketplace.
