What does a career in design look like? How do you build products that people love? Meet Chelsi Alise Cocking, a product designer at Dropbox in New York City. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Chelsi moved to the U.S. to study computational media, an interdisciplinary degree focused on computer science, digital media, and design, at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. Through internships at Goldman Sachs and Apple and her classes on human-computer interaction (HCI), Chelsi learned about careers in design and how to build products for the people who use them.
In this episode, we dive into what UI/UX (User Interface/User Experience) is, what a product designer does, career paths, skills for UX, resources for aspiring designers, and more!
