About Flat Frog Blog
Flat Frog Blog is a blog about emerging technology and design trends as they appear online and in real life. My goal is to bring together some of the information that I find inspiring and useful. Topics may include ecommerce, design, usability, marketing, and brain science.
About Erin Jo Richey
Currently, I am a user experience and marketing strategy consultant. I’ve worked for ecommerce companies, startups, and marketing agencies, helping well-known retailers and small businesses to plan, execute, and test online marketing campaigns and to design and develop new site features. I have a strong interest in helping companies measure and organize information. My work has covered a number of projects related to web analytics, on-site search, content management, and personalized recommendation technology.
My specialty is working within ecommerce and emerging digital trends. I create and manage interactive marketing strategies that mix paid advertising, online search, email marketing, and social media. I also employ usability testing, user surveys, online testing, and competitive analysis to help companies better understand their market and the needs of their customers. In addition to research and testing, I design new site features and site structures, frequently working in the areas of interaction design and information architecture.
I have a degree in cognitive science from Occidental College. My research examined visual word recognition in the bilingual brain. After working with Italian-English and Spanish-English speakers, I began applying the results to test computational models of word recognition. I also had the opportunity to study literature, art history, environmental design, and dance.
