Beth Godfrey

User Experience Designer & Researcher

A FLEXIBLE TOOLKIT

from research to prototype

Design is a Process

not a product

From contextual inquiry to stakeholder interviews, I have hands-on experience in  data procurement and multidisciplinary processing techniques. I leverage  methodologies from conceptual, speculative, participatory, universal, and user-centered design to produce tangible and digital prototypes. I am experienced in documentation and analysis of deliverables in context of the greater market or need: usability, usefulness, and interpersonal and sociocultural impact.

A collaborative approach

with measurable results

There is no greater satisfaction than making a difference through design, removing barriers and facilitating a usable, rewarding, and delightful user experience. I have previously worked with a variety of clients, including Verizon Wireless, Rachael Ray Nutrish, Moe’s Southwest Grill, ACT.org, Georgia Aquarium, The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy, Marcus Autism Center, Fulton County Department of Health, and the Historic Westside Cultural Arts Council.
