Josh is a User Experience Designer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and has, over six years, designed for the university’s Information Technology Services. He is experienced in User-Thinking and Research, Interaction Design, Agility (UX), User/Task Modelling, Usability Testing, Information Architecture, Content Strategy, Prototyping, Visual Design, and User-Centred Design.
He loves to gain insights from users and model their needs into everyday use of technology for usable experiences. This is why he is convinced there's no substitute to planning a project and/or user-research; as planning literally allows a travel through the project twice, and helps bring the desired results. His desire and obsession to executing usable, effective and beautiful interfaces is probably why he is too detailed about every design and code.
In the past, he consulted in UX to Mak-Edu Consult Limited, which saw the development of user-centred interfaces and experiences for, especially, higher educational institutions and some small and medium-sized enterprises. In-between, he maintains a private practice, a-once-in-a-while writing habit, and keeping alive his love for music.
Josh graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the Communication Design programme at the KNUST. He went on to receive the prestigious Chevening Scholarship: the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, to undertake a master's programme in User Experience Design at Kingston University, London, UK.
Josh is open for opportunities for study by research in the field of Human-Computer Interaction.
