What I Do

I collaborate with people to design the best possible experiences, from websites and apps to in-person interactions. I do design, and I train people in design.

Design Research

Research helps us better understand the scope of a given design challenge, and the ways in which people are impacted by the topics at hand.

Design Strategy

Design strategy is critical for clarifying goals, needs, assumptions, constraints, and priorities, and helps us identify the best ways of moving forward with a design solution.

Ideation and Prototyping

We quickly, generously develop ideas for addressing a given design challenge - and then narrow in on one idea to build out as a prototype. Prototyping can include wireframing.

Interaction Design

Navigability is critical to the success of a design. With interaction design, we create data-informed structures and pathways that undergird a design.

Testing and Iteration

Testing helps identify the effectiveness of a proposed design approach, and helps uncover ways in which a given design is (or is not) meeting people's needs.

User Interface (UI) Design

User interface design encompasses visual design, logo and branding, and styling to ensure that the overall aesthetic of the design approach further enhances people's needs.
