As part of Best Buy’s efforts to explore the emerging field of wearable technology, I took part in a select group within the digital team charted with exploring innovative practical applications for retail. Our explorations and concepts were captured in these decks which illustrated potential enhancement for the blue shirt, on-the-floor customer assistance program.
The work involved quick ideation exercises which yielded a number of scenarios captured in interaction user flows, storyboards and experience re-enactments.

Alfonso is an inspirational UX/Ix Designer with strong work ethic. I have learned a lot about LeanUX, design, usability, and the creative process from working with him. He pulls from a mix of instinct, user intuition, and keen eye for what works. I’m sure we will see many great things come from Alfonso in the future, he is a rock star!Evelyn Quinn Product Leader
Alfonso is the real deal: a UX designer who actually listens to users and crafts experiences that cater to their needs, an Agile collaborator who moves fast and enhances the work of everyone on his team, and a hilarious motherf***er who’s a joy to work with. I’ve personally partnered with him on projects ranging from micro-interactions to enterprise-scale content management systems, and I can tell you: if you want a creator who can think big without missing the details, you’re going to want Alfonso on your team.Nathan McIntyre UX Architect, Best Buy
