Janice Ahn is an empathic, T-shaped UX Designer based in New York City and currently consulting. Previously at Method and Razorfish, her work includes McDonald's food ordering kiosk, as well as work for Mercedes-Benz, Chubb, Uniqlo, Ford, and other clients. As a strategic design consultant, her work focuses on service design, includes ground-up research, and intersects with organization design.
Janice's goal is to work within a human-centered design team with a passion for empowering people and thoughtfully creating opportunities for individuals to experience/create meaning and beauty across the digital and physical.
With a background in filmmaking, performance studies, and literature, Janice's passion lies in story. By applying her storytelling expertise to design, she aims to provide both insight and a practical perspective. She spoke on Narrative Techniques in the IoT at the Interaction16 conference in Helsinki, Finland. Her interdisciplinary, trans-media background informs her holistic approach to design.
