Irith Williams

Human-Centred Designer in Melbourne, Australia

I am a Human-Centred Researcher, Strategist and Designer currently working at PERSUIT on a human-centred and business oriented approach to sourcing legal expertise for corporate legal teams. My role includes business and product strategy and experience design, user research, interaction design, content strategy and ux writing.

I earned my MInfTech working on theHealthMap Study at the Alfred Hospital. An interactive chronic disease management plan for people with HIV to manage their cardiovascular disease risk factors.

I published a paper on creating Design Personas with health researchers and presented on designing for health at UX Australia Service Design (Canberra) 2016.

Founder and manager of the 400+ 'Designing for Health in Australia' LinkedIn Group.

I specialise in Human-Centred Design for complex socio-technical systems including diverse abilities and cultures and love facilitating the creativity of cross-functional teams.

My experience design journey began as a specialist educational production editor. I cut my teeth working on textbooks, ranging from primary school years to academic monographs. I edited manuscripts, commissioned type specifications, design specifications, and illustrations, and I briefed typesetters for pre-press production.

This has grounded my strong affinity for UI design, content strategy and the technical constraints of content delivery.

I am a compulsive networker and sometime facilitator/event manager for @uxmelbourne.
