Hello

I’m Stephen. I design things with users in mind, sometimes even with users.

I like to work with all sorts of organizations and companies, especially those invested in social and environmental change, and I love projects that explore a range of physical and digital interactions.

I believe it’s important to empathize with the behaviors, desires, needs, and problems faced by both the business and users to figure out not only how to design a solution, but why. To get there, I’ve had experience pulling from a range of UX activities:

DESIGN

  • Final concept implementation
  • Evaluation and iteration

I also believe that every meeting should have a purpose, deliverables can be beautiful, and thinking should be polished, forward-thinking, and thought-through. I’ve worked with some pretty cool agencies and clients that I think would agree:
