DESIGNER, MENTOR, COACH, HUMAN

Bienvenue.
my Portoflio and Resumé

Accessibility

When design begins with accessibility in mind, and developers act in tandem, inclusive websites become easy. I work with developers and testers to deliver world-class accessible products

Usability

Designers need to understand what it means to create usable sites. An easy way to create a usable site is to understand that we aren’t our target audience. When we listen to our customers, everyone wins.

Mentoring

The next generation of designers are already digital natives. Helping them understand others, and how to listen and empathize is key to helping them be successful.

Skillset

Built over 20+ years in the industry

Mentor

I enjoy working with the next generation of designers. I feel I often have as much to learn as I have to teach. Let me help your teams grow and connect.

Researcher

I am passionate about talking with customers about their needs. I could listen and ask questions for hours. We need to understand what they need to be able to solve their problems

Designer

Design isn’t just about the now, but about what leads you to the now, and takes you to the future. Tools are meant to facilitate life, not interfere with it.

Recommendations

FEEDBACK FROm my co-workers

David will do everything in his power to help improve the user experience of the product, he works tirelessly to try and provide the best experience possible for our clients, members, and internal teammates. As a leader you won’t find a more caring and understanding boss who will help you balance your work with your life needs when things come up sometimes to his own detriment. I have greatly enjoyed working with David who has always treated me as a peer and helped me strive to improve myself as a designer and a person. I would recommend David for any UX leadership positions he would seek out, as his strengths truly lie in helping not just the product but also the people he interacts with.David will do everything in his power to help improve the user experience of the product, he works tirelessly to try and provide the best experience possible for our clients, members, and internal teammates.

Principal UX Designer, HealthEquity

One of Dave’s defining characteristics is that he’s passionate about helping people. Making a software interface easier to use, absolutely. But also teaching engineers design principles. Promoting a user-first development environment. Championing accessibility. Making sure people feel that their opinions are heard.
I’m not a designer, but I’ve had various projects that needed design feedback and Dave is my critic of choice. He takes enough time to make sure he understands the situation and then provides clear feedback and explains the reasons why I might make different choices.
Dave is a true leader, not because he enforces his opinions, but because he encourages others to learn and share and then come to consensus. He’s a smart guy, but he’s also humble and respectful of others’ viewpoints and expertise. He’s one of the best mentors I know, the kind that makes me consider switching fields so I can learn more from him.

Dave is an exceptional boss and designer. He did everything in his power to make my experience at Ivanti the best it could be. He is very concerned for the well being of those he works with which creates a positive and creative work environment. Aside from work, Dave’s example of personal development is inspiring. He provided an exceptional and comprehensive UX experience during my time at Ivanti.

UX Designer II at Lucid

Working with Dave Broschinsky at Burton Group, and later Gartner, has been a great experience. In the 2.5 years that I have known him, he has been patient, generous, a fair supervisor, and a heck of a teacher and mentor. I credit Dave Broschinsky with everything I know about usability and design, including best practices, methods, assessments, and how to use cutting edge software tools. These usability and design skills helped me complete my Ph.D. thesis and land a tenure-track job at UNC-Chapel Hill. As a manager, Dave is kind, communicates expectations clearly, and provides constructive feedback on my work that helps me to grow my skills. His knowledge of usability is impressive, and he approaches the theory and practice of user experience design like a scholar; his analytical skills are evident in the papers he has presented and published in scholarly and professional venues. I recommend Dave, without reservation, for his managerial skill, usability and design expertise, mentorship, and all around good attitude.
