How're you doing? Relax, fix yourself a drink.
My name is Louis Elfman. I'm a Los Angeles-based UX (and occasional UI) designer.
A born story-teller and amateur psychologist, I've had a multidisciplinary background that has given me a breadth of insight and tools for my user experience practice. I love agile/iterative approaches that allow me to collect as much direct user feedback as possible, to craft the best possible solutions for the product goals. Alternately, I use the information to help craft a better product to better meet the users' needs.
A strategic thinker and effective leader, I collaborate extremely well with cross-functional teams, feeling as comfortable discussing mobile jQuery limitations as I do typography. A firm believer that technology is art, I seek to further blur the lines between the two. I'm looking to be a part of groups and projects where I can do my part to craft better products and experiences.
Some of the brands I've worked with are: Verizon, TGiFriday's, TNT Network, The Hub Network, Starz/Weinstein, Matthew Modine
UX isn't just churning out wireframes, even on a budget and a deadline. Here's an overview of my process.
Web apps, mobile apps, responsive web and everything in between. Take a look at some select examples.
NB: Because of NDAs, I am very restricted in what I can post publicly. For my portfolio highlights, please contact me directly.
Cum Laude from USC with a degree in Creative Writing, I've had a lifelong romance with words. I'm currently collaborating on two screenplays, and am occasionally available for script/narrative consulting. Please contact me for relevant samples and references, or take a look at some of my journalistic work here.
