UX Presentation

The transition from graphic design to UX/UI design can be challenging. In this presentation, Michelle Hagen will share the lessons she learned transitioning from her early career in graphic design to her current role leading a UX/UI team and developing business operations for a Sports app startup, Bleachr.




Michelle Hagen, Lead UX/UI designer at Bleachr

Michelle is a UX/UI designer who is passionate about how design and technology work together to provide the best solution for businesses and users. A Rochester native, she studied traditional graphic design at UW-Stout before moving to the Twin Cities where she established her design career. Curious by nature, she is constantly on the go, enjoying life’s pleasures and taking on challenges head first.
