Samson Blond's Project
Samson completed our UX Program with specialization in UI in June 2019. Samson’s background is a far cry from his current vocation: he previously created and ran a successful catering company in the heart of Paris. From there, Samson introduced a new business framework to global live music platform Sofar Sounds Paris. For Samson, it was UX design that he felt combined all of his past experiences and skills.
In his own words:
“I moved into this field because I wanted to move out of the catering world, where I was running a company with a friend. I always had an interest in the tech world and knew there was an abundance of jobs. Through a buddy, I landed an internship in a creative agency where my interest grew for UX and UI design and the whole design process. After some time, I decided I wanted to deepen my UX understanding, so I took a CareerFoundry course”.
As a designer, Samson takes great satisfaction in helping clients better understand the users’ needs through user testing. For Samson, problem-solving, creativity, communication, and relationship building are just a few of the values that sit at the heart of his design philosophy.
Below, Samson showcases these skills in the project Starwalt; a responsive web app that provides property buyers with information on properties of interest.
