Hi, I'm Lewis

A multidisciplinary, full-stack designer and community builder from Nairobi, KE 🇰🇪 I'm currently building the web and mobile insights platform at Lookback.

I also help students increase their hireability for an entry-level job in the UI/UX design field at Springboard, a learning platform bridging the world’s skills gap and offering transformative online education.

Before Lookback, I shaped how users interact with the web and mobile products, branding and creative work that draws in new customers, as the First Designer (Design Team of One) and Growth Marketing Lead at Kwara.

Before Kwara, I designed the conversational and transactional social network experience on Zwuup (formerly Bonga) at Alpha Innovation Incubator. Alpha was part of Safaricom, the home of the famous Mobile Money service- M-PESA.

I go by @ngeshlew on Twitter and most other places on the internet.

Prioritization of UX Issues

It’s our one-hour live Twitter discussion (via the #uxchat Twitter hashtag) where you can rub virtual shoulders with some of the most knowledgeable UXperts on the planet and discuss a different UX topic every week. I was answering the following questions:

  • How do you prioritize features? How do you factor in technical feasibility, importance to users, and importance to business?
  • How do you create systems that will help you track and prioritize user feedback?
  • Are there techniques out there that can help prioritize UX issues?

User Research / Design in Foreign and Emerging Markets

It’s our one-hour live Twitter discussion (via the #uxchat Twitter hashtag) where you can rub virtual shoulders with some of the most knowledgeable UXperts on the planet and discuss a different UX topic every week. I was answering the following questions:

  • How would you approach user research / UX design across different cultures in an emerging market?
  • What methods do you use when creating digital solutions for a non-digital audience?
  • How do you build trust with research participants as a foreigner?
