Hello, my name is
Bronwen de Klerk
I am a UX Designer.I love surfing, yoga and flow…
I bring user flow to flow states.
My passion for technology and trying to understand how things work, and why, led me to become a software developer. But, after years of coding, I realised I preferred decoding humans than coding computers.
This led me on a journey of learning everything I could about the human body – physically, energetically and spiritually. I qualified and practiced as a fitness trainer, Pilates & yoga teacher, mindfulness & mindful eating teacher and shiatsu practitioner.
I never could leave my IT past… having taught myself to code websites in its humble HTML & CSS beginnings, I found it the perfect medium to market my services as a Wellness Specialist and then eventually my own studio. Colleagues and clients, knowing my tech-background, would often ask me to help them with ‘computer stuff’, getting me to explain complex tasks in a more accessible way. Word got around and I started taking on private web design clients
These two passions – people and technology – have now merged in a career in UX Design. In this last year I decided to formally upgrade my self-taught web development skills since working as a programmer, by embarking on studies in Full-stack Web Development and UX Design. I’m now excited to bring my knowledge and experience to work on inspiring projects to create usable and accessible products.
UX is a research-based discipline. I use quantitative and qualitative research methods to get to the heart of user needs.
Well considered user flows for each planned task lead to products that allow its users to complete tasks efficiently and smoothly.
Prototypes bring the design ideas to life and allow design improvements through user-testing before development.
I create these comprehensive and coherent blueprints for developers – vital to bringing breath to the creative vision.
Remote and live usability testing are the most important UX Design tools – giving insight into users’ goals, behaviours and contexts.
I have always felt confident in sharing ideas and asking questions on specific topics with Bronwen safe in the knowledge that I would always get a genuine answer, sympathetic advice or sound feedback. She has always maintained a very positive outlook on life and has been consistent in her approach when dealing with clients. She has a soft but confident approach that is very soothing and nurturing.

The calm and friendly manner of providing guidance is characteristic for Bronwen and I highly appreciated this.
