About Doug Wickham

I’m a UX Product Designer that loves to solve problems.

During the past 20 years, my career has taken me on a  journey from Graphic Design and  Creative Direction to my current role of Senior UX Product Designer. For the past 15 years, I’ve worked for Qurate Retail Group’s brands QVC and HSN, designing, maintaining and improving their eCommerce platform experiences. I have had the pleasure of working on a variety of exciting and creative projects for web and native apps but also conceptual projects outside the normal realm of ecommerce and retail.

I really do love UX Design because it’s the perfect blend of creativity, psychology and science. I do enjoy the journey of finding the right solution for that benefits all parties involved, whether it’s an internal product or a customer facing enhancement. I also enjoy the technical side of UX prototyping concepts and getting them in front users. That’s where the rubber hits the road. I’ve learned you have to be comfortable with taking calculated risks and failing, but learning from those mistakes is where the solution is always found.

Saint Petersburg, Florida (The Burg) has been home for a while now, but I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri. I did live in San Diego for a couple of years; I miss surfing but St. Pete is a perfect mix of the two places.

Outside of UX I keep busy exploring the world with my wife and son. I love trying new things, I would say Hobbies are my Hobby to My current list includes:

  • Fishing
  • Beer Brewing
  • Cryptozoology
  • Water Color
  • Drawing
  • Guitar
  • Movies and Music
  • Screenwriting
  • Meditation
  • Weight Lifting
  • Wood Working

I like working movie quotes into a conversation to see if anyone notices and sending Gifs in Teams chats. I figure if a picture is worth a thousand words than a movie quote gif in a conversation is at least worth two thousand, right?
