About

Nice to meet you, I'm
Dana Allen
UI/UX and product designer with a background in technology, marketing, and a passion for user experience. With over six years of UI and UX design experience and more than ten years of professional work experience, I leverage my attention to detail, experience working in fast-paced agile environments, and devotion to an elevated user experience to drive design from initial concept to final launch and continuous integration.​​​​​​​
My desire for clean user-centered designs sparked while working as the sole designer at a fast-paced tech startup. Working on projects centered around emerging technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrency, I saw poor user experience negatively impact adoption. Witnessing this correlation between complicated design and failed projects inspired me to design simple interfaces focused on both the business and the user's end goal.
