Digital Products

Whether you are bringing a new product to market or redesigning an existing one, launch a scalable cross-platform solution that will improve your metrics and achieve your goals.

Hardware ‹ › Software

Ensure your digital product plays nice with custom hardware. We’ll take a deep dive from firmware interaction design, to on-device feedback, to seamless interaction with your mobile app.

Mobile Apps 

Across Android and iOS, drive consistent engagement and improve retention with an easy-to-use mobile experience; balancing your brand and familiar platform conventions.

Functional Prototypes

Details matter and static mockups only go so far. Let’s make that product feel real from motion design to end-to-end prototypes ready for user research and to clarify implementation.

People say nice things

"Kevin was a critical asset in the relaunch of Google Fonts in 2020. Kevin worked as the lead product designer collaborating with User Research, Engineering, and Product under a tight deadline. Kevin's work was high quality and always on time. He had tremendous impact as the design lead and strategist. Our launch would not have been possible without Kevin's ability to quickly ramp up and fit into the existing team. Strongly recommend!"
- Director of UX Research, Google

"Working with Kevin is not only fun but you get to experience how world class digital products are being built today. I would recommend Kevin to any company that requires top notch Design and Product development direction. Kevin brings professionalism, quality and efficient communication to every interaction. A total pleasure to work with him."
- President & Founder, Empirical LLC

"If I were starting a company and needed a kick-ass designer, Kevin would be the first person I'd call. I was especially impressed with how creative and thorough Kevin is in his design work. If we're building a new feature, he carefully considers every possible design option and lays out the pros and cons before making a recommendation. One of the best designers I've worked with at Google."
- Director of Product Management, Google

"One of the best people I ever hired at Contour"
- Founder & CEO, Contour
