Tao Zhang

UX Designer and Researcher

Hi, I'm Tao.

I'm a UX designer who loves to solve complex design problems with a human-centered approach. I also have extensive experience of design research and accessibility. Currently I'm working on Developer Tools at Amazon Web Services.

Design projects

ArcGIS Experience Builder

I worked with product engineers and developers to establish design process and guidelines. I also designed a few widgets and patterns across widgets.

AWS Activate

I worked with product and engineering teams to understand AWS startup customers and build products and features that these users wanted.

ArcGIS Online

I designed the user experience of managing content on ArcGIS Online, with new patterns of search, filters, and views.

Item Browser

I designed this shared component for finding content in various workflows of ArcGIS Online. This is an extension of the Finding and Working with Content experience.

LayerList Widget

The LayerList widget is the primary way in the JavaScript API to display a hierarchical list of layers and layer actions in web applications.

Purdue University Libraries website

I worked as the only designer and researcher to lead the redesign effort. I applied a typical user-centered design process for this project, starting from user research, persona creation, prototyping, implementation, to iterative user testing.
