Building design teams that thrive
I'm on a mission to save the world from bad design.
I do so by building design teams that (1) deliver outsized returns and (2) give individuals a platform to do career-defining work. Over the past 10 years, I've created teams inside startups, at global marketing firms, and as standalone companies. It's from this perspective that I'm able to show organizations of all sizes how to best use design to unlock the growth of their businesses, raise awareness for their brands and increase the efficiency of their systems.
I lead teams from the front: hands-on and by example. My approach mixes elements of branding, technology and visual effects with research based user-centric design principles. This off-kilter skill set has made me an ideal partner to the best creative agencies in the world. Together, we've done innovative work for companies in almost every industry.
I value speed, consistency, curiosity and the dark science of taste; in that order. Sometimes I speak on these subjects. I'm usually looking to hire people who value the same. And, I'm always available to advise on growing design inside your company using strategically placed projects or longer-term team building.
