Adam Nemeth

User Experience Designer


I am for the users. I have spent the last dozen of years trying to create software and webpages which solve real problems of real users.

I have always been more interested in designing applications than writing them, starting at the age of 8: I designed a game on my Commodore 64. When I realized noone is going to write it for me, I learned programming. 

I have been working in the web industry since 2000, first as a freelancer, then as a teamlead-architect, which usually included interaction design as well. I officially received my UX Designer title at Nokia Locations & Commerce in 2011. Never looked back at development ever since.

Technical background

In the past, I was a senior developer at different development firms. I am fluent with JavaScript, HTML, PHP. I have worked with ASP.NET, Python and Java EE as well.

I have a formal education background: 

Software Engineer MSc - received in 2009 from Budapest University of Technology and Economics

Development-wise, I am SOLID-driven, I provide clean code.

You can read some of my code here or my thoughts about development here or here

User Flows and Customer Journeys

There are several styles on how the behaviour of a system is to be expressed.

In his seminal book, Dan Brown shows 24 ways of doing it, and I could show another dozen equally right.

Grid-based visual designs

Polished works with their strict grids

I usually don't do visual design, but sometimes I have to, so I am going to show that I am aware of governing typographical rules

I almost always create moderate, International/Swiss Style graphics with clear visual hierarchy.

Press the down arrow to see some examples, 2013

A standard grid used for "presentations-to-be-read". Typefaces: Oswald (Google WebFonts), Helvetica Light. Key scale is half of baseline. Vertical gap 1cm, 2, 3, or 4 columns

Nearby Hotels, 2012

Font family: Avenir Next, colors designed to project a friendly, "winking", but still business professional image. 12- column vertical grid, separate margins / padding columns 

Concept for UX.SE, 2012

Concept for a UX.SE question regarding form layout

Interactive prototypes

My first interactive prototype (written in HTML + JS,  without backend) goes back to 2001 for Pentatrade Ltd.

I have also used Omnigraffle's interactive PDF features to create interactive mockups / wireframes with hotspots.

Map concept, 2012

An interactive map engine you can try out right here. Built as a demo of web cartography. In case it doesn't work built-in, try here

IA design

I made my first IA-based website in 2004, with personas, card-sorting and sitemap

I am familiar with card sorting, used OptimalWorkshop tools to test designs, wrote tone of voice documents, sometimes ran association tests with users

User testing and analytics

I have done formal user testing,  but also maintained continous, informal communication with users elsewhere

I have used Clicktale on multiple projects, usually creating videos to summarize findings.

I am familiar with Google Analytics and regularly used that and other statistics to reconstruct typical user behaviour
