An Elegant Seasoned UX Designer

Hello, I'm Stephanie 👋 salut

Hello, I'm Stephanie salut

Principal UX designer

I support teams to design accessible and inclusive products that meet user needs and business goals. My key strengths lie in product strategy, interaction design, and web accessibility.

Passionate about people and technology, I believe that everyone deserves good design. I also share articles about web accessibility that I select and publish frequently.

I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and in my free time, I am a Door Hunter and a mix-media artist.


How can I help you?

 I have 15 years of experience working on the end-to-end design process, from research and strategy, through to the execution, launch, and improving the products based on people's feedback and data collection. My key strenghts are:

Product Strategy Icon

Product Strategy

Are you looking to improve your website or app? I like to start to analyze your business goals, study your competitors, do some UX auditusability testings, and build user journeys. I need to understand what and where the pain points are before trying to solve them. Yes, I like to challenge assumptions!

Design & Research icon

Research & Design

I design elegant and intuitive user-centric products for desktop and mobile. I use iterative design to create or refine a product. I collaborate on the information architecture and develop interactive prototypes. I also prepare design systems to communicate with product teams.

Accessibility Icon

Web Accessibility

I am passionate about understanding the users I'm designing for, and I continually strive to incorporate accessibility elements into my work to ensure that all users can benefit from inclusive design. I also do accessibility audits and review the inclusivity of design from early to pre-prod stages.


Case studies

While preparing the IAAP certification, I'm currently helping a non-profit to comply with WCAG 2.0 standards. The upcoming case studies will present my journey optimizing the website to meet accessibility standards.
