Mark DeHate
UX Designer - Problem Solver - Tinkerer

My Projects

My professional career thus far is full of b2b employers, so as a result, I'm unable to disclose most of my day-to-day work on a public website. So here are a few interesting things that I can show you - more on the way soon!


I'm Mark DeHate, a UX Designer based in the Lansing, MI area. I've been involved in the whole spectrum of web development, from SQL databases and Apache configuration to CSS and JavaScript, not to mention a fair amount of time spent in tech support, system administration, and networking. At the moment I'm handling UX design for a whole fleet of Agile teams at WorkForce Software in Livonia, MI.

My current primary role is building mockups and prototypes to support Product Owners before user stories get written, plus answering questions from developers on UI details as the code is written. Not to mention taking on usability studies, interviews, and other user research tasks - the goal is always to make sure we're building the right things AND building things right.

I love creative problem solving, in whatever form that takes. I particularly get fired up for the chance to take something ugly and make it beautiful - no matter if that's a design, a workflow, a piece of code, or a wiring closet. I especially love replacing old electrical outlets. Seriously, it's so satisfying.
