ABOUT YOU

You’ll sweat the details over a beautiful design without sacrificing the best possible user experience. You’re passionate about elegant solutions — but know design should get out of the way so users can glide thru interactions like butter. You love peppering the path from A to B with moments of surprise and delight. You leverage insights from user-testing to influence various design directions.

You’re excited to whip up lo-fi wires, hi-fi mockups and prototype on multiple platforms. You keep up on best practices for desktop and mobile. You understand design for iOS vs Android. You don’t shy away from new interfaces like watches, voice, etc.

You balance logic and beauty, art and science, aesthetics and utilitarianism. Your ideal design is a beautiful solution.
