My design services extend to fit the needs of your project. I can research and frame opportunities, originate new interactive concepts, develop working prototypes, direct design teams and help bring new products to market.Get in touch
Insightful design research frames opportunities by gathering quantitative and qualitative information from my client and their audience. Methods include fieldwork, in-situ observation, surveys, interviews, and competitor analysis. My personal library of emerging technologies and interactive prototypes keeps me in touch with the latest technology.
Understanding my client’s audience requires a curiosity driven approach based on respect, responsibility and honesty. I strive to treat participants in the research process as collaborators instead of subjects, creating a positive experience for everyone involved.
Whenever possible, I like to be involved with a project from its origins, using my experience and imagination to help set the team on a productive track.
I enjoy working with agencies, or when circumstances require, can also assemble a team from my professional network. I frequently research, design, and develop project-winning proposals that exceed client expectations, leaving them asking “When can we see more?”
New projects gather momentum with inspiring visions that everyone can get behind. I help identify specific challenges, write and illustrate detailed design documents, and collaborate with teams to develop a winning strategy.
Like startups that use “lean” principles to achieve a “minimum viable product,” I employ similar cost-effective strategies to create and iterate projects using “just enough” prototyping. I can make interactive mockups for screen-based devices, design and engineer objects in 3D, prototype with electronics and develop new digital-physical interfaces.
From augmenting standardized hardware with customizable applications to innovating entirely new technologies, I can optimize the design process (and your spend) to create productized experiences that reach wider audiences while opening new markets and revenue streams.
Previous projects include hand-held gaming devices, interactive tables, volumetric displays, large-scale immersive spaces, and smart-ticketing systems.
