          Luke is a super talented user-focused UX designer. At Imagitas, he always asked the right questions, challenging himself and the rest of the team to think differently about the experience, creating a better product in the process. As a team member, Luke is a great collaborator. He uses his keen eye to give actionable feedback to others and asks the same of the rest of the team. He's also willing and quick to try new things to add to his UX quiver. During a recent Design Sprint, for instance, he eagerly took on the roll of user researcher – something he had never done before – and led participants through our prototype to get feedback. He killed it. I would not hesitate to hire Luke again.

          Working with Luke at Imagitas has been a pleasure. Luke started at Imagitas as a UX intern and within only one month, our team decided to hire him full time. He demonstrates an advanced understanding of UX principles, visual design, and hierarchy. Our team participated in an intensive Google Ventures Sprint where he conducted the user testing. Luke created an in-depth survey to find the right testing candidates and conducted all aspects of testing with precision. Luke is always asking, "What can I do to help," and is 100% a team player. I have seen him learn and grow quickly through his time at Imagitas and know any UX team would be lucky to have him.

          Luke Wenzel is a very talented designer. We worked together at Imagitas. As a recent college graduate, he started on our team as an intern, quickly proved to be a valuable asset, and was brought on full time within a quarter. Luke contributed to a wide range of projects: from web application page flows to a style guide for the My Move brand and much more. He is an excellent problem solver with an eye for aesthetic details, goofy sense of humor, devastating ping pong serve, and good taste in music. He would make a great addition to any design team -- as a creative hard-working designer and positive influence on office culture.
