Design Thinking for Start-Ups

"As a start-up, I have found that we are pretty good at rapidly testing ideas and trying the lightest possible version first before building it out in full. We are also good at getting to know our users, conducting user interviews and continuously collecting customer feedback."

Creating Thoughtful, Engaging and Usable Experiences

My ultimate goal has always been to create engaging and useful experiences. But I also find satisfaction in sharing many other design leaders experiences, with the intent of promoting beautiful, simple, and sensible ideas.

As I continue to practice the art and science of design thinking, I will share what I have learned on this website, as often as I can. My hope is to encourage creatives (as well as non-creatives), to continuously explore and experiment with the latest in design thinking information and insight.

Experiencing beautiful design is wonderful. It reminds us of how vast and sophisticated our world really is.  Dream. Design. Share.
