User Experience and Interaction Designer
Ian is a User Experience (UX) and Interaction Designer (IxD) in Seattle, WA. With a combination of technical and design experience, that pushes both to their fullest potential. He is available for freelance work!
Ian recently received a User-Centered Design Certificate from the University of Washington’s Human Centered Design and Engineering department to gain complementary User Experience knowledge, adding to his education and experience at the intersection of design and technology. He has been interested in design since childhood, and has a design history since earning a Bachelors degree in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Design experience from web design, multimedia, interactive, and visuals projects to creating collaborative art installations with Seattle artists.
Ian loves diving into a task or problem with a team to work to develop elegant design solutions. Fit and finish in both physical and virtual environments are high art to him. He’s always watching interactions people have with objects and interfaces and thinking about the ways a design can be improved with the goal of reducing friction in an interaction or finding novel ways tasks can be accomplished.
