Hi, I'm Kyle Howard.
I'm a multidisciplinary UX designer with a background in filmmaking and motion graphics who specializes in visually compelling user experiences.

About

As a former video editor and animator in the advertising industry, I used to spend my time sorting through hours of footage and piecing it all together into a slick 30-second commercial. Today, I talk with users and turn those insights into effective digital experiences that are both easy to use and easy on the eye.

I empathize with users and understand complex problems by asking the right questions at the right time.

I play the role of “UX editor” throughout the design process, helping companies zero in on what matters most.

I take into account the business goals of the client as well the needs of their users.

I improve usability by writing in a language that users can understand while maintaining the voice of the brand.

I create animations that do more than look cool. My designs tell a story and help users complete the task at hand.

I work closely with my teammates to ensure that every aspect of a product comes together in the end.

ZokuVault

Securely storing and sharing all of your family’s important documents in one place sounds like a great idea. When ZokuVault first launched, however, users were overwhelmed and afraid. After observing first-time users and listening to their concerns, we designed a comprehensive onboarding experience to guide them through the product and earn their trust.

Omnipointment

Omnipointment started out as a scheduling product for busy college students working on group projects. Finding a time for everyone to meet, however, was just one of many obstacles facing our users. In order to transform Omnipointment into a complete group project solution, we designed an entirely new project management tool.

Prompted

Parents need to know what’s going in their teenager’s life. School report cards, however, only tell a small part of the story. As part of an ed-tech design challenge, my team and I created Prompt.ed, the first journaling app designed specifically for high school students.

Before I designed products, I told stories for brands. Click here to see some examples of how I used my animation and graphic design skills to bring these stories to life.
