My name is Fatemeh Farajmandi, and I am Senior UX designer based in San Francisco, California. I am constantly inspired by art and design, beside that love taking photos for my personal photo blog “Looking With …“.
I have more than fifteen years of experience in UX and UI design, create complex flow-diagrams, mockups specification, while collaborating with both dev and business stakeholders through the life of projects.
For three years, I was lead UX designer for the different features in Cloud and Mobile Collaboration team at Cisco, specifically for “Content Sharing”, “Meetings” and “Marketplace (Integrations & Bots)” for both mobile & desktop client, creating flow diagrams, wireframes & prototypes. I worked with product managers to determine the phasing of upcoming features across multiple platforms and devices and closely worked with engineers as the projects being developed, delivering necessary annotations/design specifications.
Prior to working at Cisco, I have worked for almost two years as Senior Visual Designer at Mindjet. I was responsible for the visual design of all Mindjet products e.g. desktop, web, tablet & mobile. My focus was on designing engaging and innovative end to end user experiences using unique visuals across the entire product line. I enjoyed creating flow-diagrams and high-fidelity mockups as part of the user experience process, defining a consistent visual language throughout the product and preparing detailed visual design specifications using visual style guidelines.
I worked at Roche in Paris, France for more than three and a half years as an art director & designer. I was part of the Roche Digital Marketing Agency, which is an internal service aimed at supporting the development of eMarketing across Roche and maximizing the potential of the Internet channel. Being responsible for overall design and quality control of global websites targeting various cultures and legal requirements gave me the chance to interact directly with customers, project managers, solution architects, internal and external design agencies and developers in order to gather and communicate requirements.
I was born and raised in Bandar Lengeh (Iran) till I graduated high school, then I moved to Shiraz (Iran) to study Software Engineering at Azad University. After finishing my bachelor’s degree, I went to Tehran in order to work as a graphics & multimedia designer in AICTC (Advanced Information & Communication Technology Center). I then moved to Montbéliard (France) to continue my studies in Masters of Multimedia & Digital Art at PSM (Produits et Services Multimedia) at the University of Franche-Comté.
