Rachel Winchester: Visual Webmaster

User Interface/User Experience Design

Professional Summary

There are three titles I use to describe my current interests and career aspirations: entrepreneur, art historian, and webmaster. I want to continue using all aspects of my experiences in art, technology, and business to initiate projects that connect people. I aim to work on digital products for professionals and institutions in the arts, culture, and entertainment sectors.

My bachelors degree in art history from an acclaimed liberal arts school, Swarthmore College, has taught me much of the breadth of what I need to know to be a versatile art historian and cultural interpreter. Consequently, I am interested in gaining more quantitative skills in technology and analytics through hands-on job experiences. I believe this is the key to becoming most effective in this field in the future and to find more ways to combine my passion for art and culture with with my passion for S.T.E.M. and business. In addition to Search Engine Optimization, I am eager to expand my knowledge in business analytics, digital marketing, web development, and alternative assets (art, antiques, real estate).

To me, UI/UX design demands a balance of analytical and methodical left-brain skills with artistic and creative right-brained skills in order for a website, or other digital product, to prosper. It connects the job of a technical back-end web developer to the job of an imaginative social media influencer. I love learning about how digital projects are initiated and completed, how the back-end markup of a website connects to the user interface and experience, how updates to Google's algorithms can impact the success of the entire site, how certain web metrics can point out errors in a website's design, and so much more. I'm attracted to the complexity of the internet, a landscape that is constantly changing.
