Murray Grigo-McMahon

Murray Grigo-McMahon


As an undergraduate I studied graphic design. Even as a graphic designer I saw myself as more of  a facilitator and enabler, with a responsibility to the people who came in contact with my design not just those who commissioned it. This notion is essentially what lead me to UX. To design is to take responsibility for the experiences people have with your design. The trick is not to design in a bubble or simply for ones self. You have to approach it in a collaborative way, involving the people you are designing for and the experts from other disciplines. It’s not a case of a single artistic vision but a shared endeavor where the UX designer is the facilitator.
