About Me.

Holly in San Diego

Hi, I’m Holly Tunison, a UX/UI Designer and Web developer.

About Me

My journey into design began after I completed my undergraduate degree in Communications at the University of Colorado Denver in 2020. While working as a hairstylist, I developed a passion for graphic and web design, seeking a transition into the tech industry. A pivotal moment at a UX meetup in Boulder deepened my understanding of UX design, inspiring me to enroll in a UX intro class at Boulder Digital Arts and pursue a 12-month UX design and web development bootcamp with CareerFoundry.

Professional Experience

Since then, I’ve embraced various roles, including UX/UI Designer, UX Researcher, Web Designer, and Developer. I have gained valuable experience through freelance roles and a contract position with a bank. Currently, I work on innovative projects at Bluewebshop, a web design and marketing agency.

This summer, I am interning at a startup, creating web and mobile apps for a community response alert system aimed at schools. The system leverages advanced technologies to detect weapons, enhancing safety and security in educational environments.

Skills and Expertise

I am pursuing a Master of Science in User Experience from Arizona State University, where I delve into research, accessibility, prototyping, usability testing, design thinking, and interaction design.

My technical expertise spans HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, along with Node.js, React.js, Git, and database management. My understanding of development and code enables me to communicate designs effectively with development teams, ensuring a smoother implementation process.

Personal Life

I live near Raleigh, North Carolina, with my partner, Brennan, and our dog, Obi. We enjoy camping and surfing on the Outer Banks and in Florida during our free time.
