I’m Ted Kessler, an up-and-coming UX/UI/Product Designer and 3D artist with programming experience and a background in healthcare technology from the Bay Area, CA. I just completed a UX/UI Design certificate program and am excited to get to work. I found this Junior Product Designer position with The Meet Group and I’m very excited about it — Junior Product Designer is my desired position at this point on my path to becoming a Product Designer. I also appreciate what The Meet Group is doing as I believe human connection is more important than ever at this point in our history.

Here is how I specifically align with your desired qualifications (taken from the job description):

✔ BFA in Design or Similar Design Program (BS in Digital Arts)

✔ Portfolio with at least 1 mobile design project (all of my projects below have designs for mobile)

✔ 0-1 year of experience (that means you new grads!) (that means me too)

✔ Proficiency in the AdobeSuite (Photoshop & Illustrator) (over a decade of experience with these)

✔ Knowledge of Figma or similar application (I use Figma for most of my work)

✔ Ability to accept constructive feedback and execute on action items

✔ Open communicator

✔ Desire to learn new things

Linked below are my most recent UX projects. All of them were based on prompts in my UX Academy bootcamp course. Food Art with Kids was a paid project with a real client.

I also have some smaller design exercises on my Dribbble page.

Thanks so much for your time! Please contact me via my contact form, LinkedIn, or by email with any questions.
