Chris Havranek

User Experience Designer

Currently instilling UX throughout Blizzard Entertainment

I’m a strategist who constantly strives to achieve success through in-depth research and constant learning. Creating an optimal flow from the beginning of the process to the end is critical to any project's outcome regardless of medium. My work helps the team keep the user’s motivations, goals, and roles top of mind. I aim to help create a product that matches both the business goals and the user’s ideal experience.

In a world that’s constantly changing it’s critical to stay on top of consumer and business trends. As technology increases, so does the rate at which it progresses. I believe as someone who acts as an advocate for the user, it’s my job to also constantly evaluate what trends are coming up. Constantly looking for inspiration helps me to stay on top of best practices and provides strong corroboration
for moving a project forward in a positive direction.
