My name is Josie Coffman and I am an experienced Designer in both UX/UI Design and Visual Graphic Design. I was born and raised in the South which naturally comes with a love for the outdoors. In 2015, I graduated from Jacksonville State University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design with a Minor in Nutrition & Foods. I try to incorporate these two interests into my work whenever possible. An example of this can be seen in a series I named “Think About It,” which directly targets the benefits of eating the best foods that fuel specific parts of the body. I also enjoy traveling to new places with my husband and trying out new restaurants and foods along the way. You can follow my foodie obsessions on Facebook by following The Local Food Snob.
I began my professional career as a Graphic Designer at Elbit Systems of America located in Talladega, AL where I received a year long Co-Op. I was able to learn some of the ebb and flow of corporate marketing as I worked to update all of Elbit’s marketing materials. Upon graduation I was hired on at Graham & Company, LLC as their sole Graphic Designer. I have most recently left my position at Graham to pursue a UX Research/UI Design position and am excited to seize a new opportunity in this field of design as part of BBVA Compass' User Experience Design Team. As a UX/UI Designer, I believe that someone has to be highly detail oriented, empathetic, and able to produce user-centered, research-driven design. UX Design also requires a ton of collaboration between team members (Product Owners, Business Analysts, Developers, Designers, etc) which I really enjoy! I am constantly looking to expand my skill set every chance I get and seizing on the opportunities that my work and freelance can provide.
