I am Nate Ude

a UX Designer and a UI engineer. I am passionate about problem solving, on the web and in everyday life.


I have many skills like cooking over campfires and drinking coffee. But more to the point, skills related to being a UI engineer on the modern web. Here are a few projects I have been working on recently:


I worked closely with the owner Ken Gaebler to rebrand and design the website with the goal of create a more modern look and feel, as well as more accessiable UI.

Pup-Ups is a Rails App and a fun project that allows me to play around with rails concepts and infastructure while looking at pictures of puppies.

Donut Study

The Donut Study is an interactive landing page that I developed while I was at Walker Sands. It was a fun project that allowed me to play around with some of the new CSS3 and HTML5 properties.

About Me

I am a typical out doors kinda of design nut, working remotely for a company out of Chicago designing UX flows based on research and data while spending my free time hiking and camping in the Black Hills of South Dakota

Prior to starting my career, I attended the University of Wisconsin — Eau Claire, where I graduated with a BA emphasizing graphic design. During my last year of school, I interned in Madison WI, with a local designer, Matt Schaser, working with clients on both print and web projects.

During my school years, I became interested in the web and after a few brief intro courses, I figured out how to use online forums combined with trial and error to learn how to pick up coding languages. In this manner I moved through HTML, CSS, JavaScript to WordPress and PHP. Now working with a full team and now on to Ruby on Rails.
