About Me: Jonathan Wagenkencht

Hi! I'm Jonathan, an innovator, researcher, organizer, and User Experience major at MSOE!

My UIF training was in 2020, from August - October in the midst of Covid-19.

I’m fascinated by the intersection of human perception and technology and how we can use principles from psychology, business, visual design, and information architecture to connect to people through digital products in a way that feels natural and intuitive.

What Motivates me

  • Using the design thinking process to create order out of chaos from large-scale down to the small details of a project with the goal of meeting customers needs as effectively as possible.
  • Bringing people together as a team by recognizing how each person’s skills, knowledge, and experience contribute to a project. The UX field is all about cross-disciplinary interaction and tying together the loose ends between designers, developers, stakeholders, and ultimately, customers.
  • Creating beautiful, functional, user friendly digital products that offer real value and solve real problems for real people.
  • The opportunity to work with a wide variety of professionals on a project team and learn from their unique skill sets and experiences.
