            [post_title] => Shawn Weston
            [post_excerpt] => Shawn is a UX/UI Designer for WorkWave, located at Bell Works in Holmdel. His primary focus is designing new features for — and improving the overall user experience of — PestPac, WorkWave’s industry-leading pest control software solution. Last year, as part of a five-person UX team, he helped launch the User-Centered Design Initiative (UCDI) at WorkWave. The UCDI’s mission is to advance the understanding and use of UX tools and methodologies throughout the company. UCDI workshops advocate best practices in conducting user and market research, synthesizing data, developing personas, ideating within a team environment and user testing. 

Shawn is a graduate of General Assembly’s User Experience Design Immersive in New York City and, previously, a UX consultant for startups such as Slate NYC, an on-demand housekeeping service, and Givz, a social giving platform. Informed by more than 15 years experience as an award-winning visual journalist, Shawn stresses not only the importance of asking the “who,” “what,” “when” and “where” before sketching begins, but, most importantly, the “why.”
