Hi there. I am Diana D’Achille.
I am a UX/UI designer with a passion for creating user friendly experiences. Currently, I am a UX/UI Manager for Verizon’s Corporate Communication team. I have worked on numerous innovative projects and have been responsible for many of the visual elements on the Verizon’s website. My assignments have included homepage marquees, landing pages, UX/UI redesigns, and lead designer for many of Verizon’s campaigns and device launches.
I was born and raised in Denville, New Jersey and exposed to art and technology at a very young age. My father is a computer science professional, so I have always been exposed to the newest innovations. My Grandmother is a talented fine art painter; a dedicated artist who works long hours. Having the opportunity to attend many of my grandmother’s art shows is what gave me my initial interest in art. I always like to say, “the combination of mixing technology with art is fascinating because it has no limits, the possibilities are endless”.
I am a Cum Laude graduate from Marywood University with a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Multimedia. I was a four year member of Marywood’s cross country varsity team and a three year starter for the lacrosse team. I earned a Mini Masters User Experience Certification from Rutgers and have successfully completed a Web Master’s Certification from the County College of Morris in 2014. Currently, I am attending Quinnipiac University to obtain my Masters degree in Interactive Media with a concentration in User Experience Design. I enjoy the challenge of staying on top of the forever changing edge of technology and am always looking to learn something new.
When I am not sitting at my desk designing, you can find me releasing energy in any physical activity. I love the outdoors, being around people, spending time with my dog, and competing in 5k races for charities. I contribute my positive and energetic personality from eating healthy and staying fit. My most creative ideas are found on my daily runs. I also feel my past involvement in sports has taught me the importance of time management, discipline, and perseverance; qualities that every user experience or interface designer should possess.
