Hey there! I am Elizabeth Perkins, a User Experience Design Major at Bradley University. My interests lay around me in the world from the musical arts to engineering endeavors.
I am a dedicated, hardworking
designer that is striving to create
products centered around
I often find myself studying others and how they interact with the world around them. May it be poorly designed door handles or video games that bring them frustration. I hope to find a way to make experiences better for the people around me.
On a personal level, I am a gal that likes to spend time playing with my two pups, Dresden and Butters. I enjoy walking around my hometown and getting coffee on the rare decent days of Illinois weather. I hope to find a work family that shares the same enthusiasm for design. Lately I have picked up my camera and often take pictures of the world from a different perspective. I walk the ally home from class and find flowers that grow in places that often seem out of place.
I strive to become a better designer everyday. I just need to get my mind to think like those around me.
I took this photo on the lower floor of the Downtown Peoria Riverfront Museum in July 2017. It was a rainy day and the sun started to shine. I found how the droplets gathered upon the window quite fascinating. Just another day in Illinois where the rain just kept going.
I took this photo in the Everett McKinley Dirksen Park in Pekin, Illinois along one of the many parks hiking trails. It was a cold November evening and the trees blocked the setting sun well. I often come here with Dresden my pup for long walks in the nature reserve.
I was the Project Lead for a growing non profit called Agency of Life, developed by Danielle Hudson. I lead a small team of the Bradley's UX Design club in creating A.O.L's logo suite, website layout, and work documents used in promotion. This was a growing experience for the team.
