Justine Marie Benoit
UI/UX Designer | Front-end Developer
I am a UI/UX Designer and Front-end Developer in Las Vegas, NV. It's important for me to be an advocate for the product's users. That's why I prioritize usability over aesthetics in my work. I like my products to be intuitive for its users, but also visually memorable, and a joy to use. My design style is clean and simple. Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new, and I am always seeking new principles, ideas, and inspiration to further grow in the realm UI design and development. Technology is ever changing, and so I make it a point to stay vigilant and continue to learn and adapt to our current environment. I love what I do, and I always put my whole heart into my work.
I was born and raised in the Philippines, fresh-off-the-boat in Las Vegas, NV in 2008. I began my career as an Automation Technician at Cirque du Soleil then, in 2017, decided to switch careers and become a UI/UX Designer. In 2018, I started my new career at Konami Gaming, Inc. where I started as a UI/UX Designer. Then in early 2019, I was given the opportunity to be a Front-end Developer as well.
Outside of work, I am a mom to two puppies and a tiny human. I am also a whiskey enthusiast, a fit foodie, a fantasy fiction and pop culture nerd, and a rush hour traffic pop star.
