My experience spans strategic innovation, operational service design and tactical UX / product.
Most recently I’ve been working closely with Public Safety agencies in various capacities. You can read/see more of my experience working in this space here, here, here, and here.
You may know me from the cancer diagnosis and treatment worksheets I developed out of frustration/anger/grief after my husband died from a 6-week diagnosis-to-death healthcare nightmare blitz. You can read more about that here and download the worksheets here.
I’m much better at talking/writing about design than making websites about myself. You can hear me talk about:Saving UX here,
Design & Ethics here,
Human Centered Design here,
Design as a Public Utility here,
Creativity & Constraints here.
I’m grateful to have worked at, with, and for incredible people and on amazing projects. You can stalk them all on my LinkedIn page here.
I’m April Starr,
a human centered design practitioner, leader, and educator for over 20 years.
