My name is Ruby Teppanta. My original name is Prapaipan, and now you can probably guess where this website name came from.
About myself, I started working as an alternative medicine specialist back in Thailand for three years. Then I moved to NZ to continue my healthcare area by studying Healthcare Management, but I was finding myself very creative over and over again when making some Facebook and Instagram posts drawings for my friends to help them mostly with their business. And I like nothing more than drawing and taking a long drive with my family while discussing things on the way. During one trip like that, my husband asked me if I could take a UX/UI online course to see if I like it. That time I worked as a support worker. I decided to give it a go, and from the moment I learned about UX and human-centric design, I knew that I wanted to be part of it to actively build solutions that would make a meaningful impact on users!
In 2020, I started moving to a career in UX design. The more I was diving into it, the more I liked it. It felt so amazing when you can apply your creative approach for building user interfaces and concentrating on how exactly my users would feel about those interfaces and solutions, trying to put myself in their shoes to see their needs and pain points. My drawing passion complemented my UI skills, so the creativity that I expressed in my drawings helped me build more sophisticated user interfaces for my clients.
Being a UI/UX specialist is a never-ending self-improvement process. To improve, I learn and research a lot, and I also help local businesses to enhance their user experience and digital presence by applying UX methods. It is a good practice for me and a UI/UX specialist, and a way to get more connections.
