Allen Boitz

Who I Am

My name is Allen Boitz and I am a UI Designer. My modus operandi is to empathize with the user, figure out their pain and their goals, and find the path of least resistance for them to achieve those goals.

What I Do

I produce thoughtful, frictionless experiences for users in the most beautiful design possible.

How I Work

I work in a fast, iterative manner while engaging and presenting designs to key stakeholders. My philosophy is that all design input is valid and all user feedback is valuable.

Not only did he handle the responsibility with grace, but he was constantly taking opportunities to contribute his ideas while simultaneously encouraging his fellow team members. I was able to learn a lot from him personally, and was constantly amazed by how he would selflessly volunteer his time and efforts to help a coworker in need."
