Chris Gervais | Full Stack Product Designer

ABOUT ME

A UX designer by day, with a strong background in web development. I can prototype and I can speak engineering.

Equal parts experience and versatile when providing UX design solutions, I’m both a design mentor and a continuous learner.

For over 20 years, I‘ve helped to design and produce digital solutions across a wide range of sectors for some of North America’s largest corporations. I’ve worked in media, tourism, pharmaceutical, finance, government, mining, information technology, hospitality, finance, and food service to provide user-centric principles to innovative digital products.

Over the years, I’ve seen many technologies emerge and shift. From initial planning through to project launch, my focus is to maintain and understand broad and up-to-date industry standards and trends. Coming from an agency, there hasn’t always been the time, budget, or desire to embrace great UX but that doesn’t stop me from championing usability, feedback, and good research.

When I’m not creating user-focused design experiences you can find me engaged as a front-end designer, developer, or motion graphic artist, with a fair share of coding thrown into the mix.

And when I’m done with projects for the day, mentoring up and coming UX designers, or honing my craft, I’m busy reflecting on ways to make user-centered design even better.
