I’m Benny, a Seattle-based creative who specializes in product design. I expertly craft scenarios that convey the user’s journey, while highlighting product features that surprise and delight. I have worked on all stages in a product’s life-cycle including envisioning sessions with customers, building prototypes for user testing, and teaming with engineers to create pixel perfect products. I’ve also done branding, art direction, and have spent a decade working in museum exhibitions. I believe in a holistic approach to design, as it offers broader expressions and decisions are backed by supporting data.
I'm always interested in taking about the future of design, how technology can best benefit humanity, and work that is community oriented or with not-for-profits. Let's talk about opportunities to collaborate.
