UX

Luck is the residue of design
–Branch Rickey

Creating a solution that enables folks to effortlessly achieve the tasks they set for themselves in a given space is, at heart, a matter of relationship-building.

I’m really into building those relationships.

You can see that in my work as a designer for the Swiss national exhibition at the London Design Biennale:

Dynamic balancing

Through my PhD training I’ve become an expert at crafting research plans with clear objectives and I have developed a robust habit for clarifying scope.

This means that when I plan my projects I understand how to budget the appropriate resources to meet our objectives.

And when it’s necessary to expand that scope?

I reliably account for the increased efforts and resources necessary to move the process forward.

You can see how I did that kind of work here, when I worked on a team to revamp the Fernbank Museum of Natural History’s mobile application:

Testing hypotheses, guided by the evidence, simply efficacious.

My award-winning design work has always been the result of collaborating with smart and generous people and grounding our decisions in a context.

From the noise of that context I find what simply works. You can see some of that at work in my ecommerce microsite short-shorts enthusiasts, Chubbies.

Let’s work together
