Rotimi Creative Director of Product Design

About

Welcome to my website. My name is Rotimi Ajayi-Dopemu. I am a Director of Product Design with expertise and education in software engineering, UX design and entrepreneurship. The first application I wrote was a Win32 GUI application that Indexed CD's in 1999. I have since picked up web development and began Full Stack Engineering for client work in 2014. During that time I graduated from UCSC with a degree in Human Computer Interaction which introduced me to the world of UX. I have continued my work with entrepreneurial projects and client work ranging from mobile app development, web development and marketing. When I am not designing and developing engaging products I am creative writing or reading books.

Positions

  • I apply trends in web design and mobile application design. This does not mean the standard top 10 list you might find on your favorite tech news cast. These are trends that apply industry research and best practices to each element of the UX design. Building a content development strategy is also one of my fortes. Metrics I tend to gear my work towards are reach rather than hits. A client could easily pay for inbound links from any PPC campaign and get results but my strategy is always based on long-term goals that are substantial and secure. The design plays and important part in this content strategy since the aesthetics of a product is tied with the copy and brand. I work great with designers because of my design-first methadology.

Portfolio

Questist Website

A custom design built using Wordpress meant to cater to an older audience and match the musicians aesthetic tastes. Featuring upcoming videos, albums and blog.

Judy G. Artist Website

Stem Cell Therapy Directory Website

Weight Loss Site

SFO Atlas Hotel Website

SFO Atlas Hotel

A One Page HTML page for a Hotel in SFO. I chose the HTML theme and included their content. As with other HTML sites I included PHP code for the contact form.

Packet Micro Website

Packet Micro

Packet Micro envisioned a new website with a professional look for their company. It was originally implemented with Joomla and Hika Cart to give them a shopping cart that would function and display their products. Their main source of leads was a form so that was also implemented and worked along side the shopping cart.

 

Projects

Adapt This SWx2 Meetup

Unmotive Podcast

Unmotive is a podcast on technology that seeks to explore the design of the software products from by having professionals in the field talk about relevant topics to users. Hopefully, this will bridge the gap between professional and casual user. I got the idea from hearing about lines around the block for Apple's new iPhone and the generally accepted idea that Apples software and hardware design are top tier. I am hoping to explore this phenomenon more in depth through personal reflections and interviews.

Palo Alto Web Design Meetup

Meetup Groups

I hosted two regular bi-weekly meetup groups. One Meetup was for writers to come and write and have their works critiqued. The other meetup was a technology based meetup where we discussed the current landscape of programming languages, careers and more. I met lots of people through the meetups and even stayed in contact with a few of them. Currently, I only attend meetups but would like to host again if possible.

Adapt This Review Site

Adapt This Blog

I worked with a 5 other writers to create a blog based on reviewing book to film adaptations. The blog was a personal not for profit site. It started with a more serious tone through the voices of it's authors. However, I found that adding some humor helped make the reviews easier to write and the content more cohesive especially on social media. I started including tongue in cheek references and memes. This was a way to pivot the sites content, currently I may release a similar project on that domain after some further research.
