Hi there! I'm Darien.
I've been in the design game for a bit over 4 years now, with a diverse background in both User Experience and Motion Design.
Once a briefing is complete, well before you ever see me adorn myself with my Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones and begin designing—you'll likely hear me ask questions like: "How do we know this is the right product? Who is this really for? How can we optimize the process? How about we take the time to experiement?" As well as inquire about research.
I couldn't be more excited to continue partnering with people who can challenge me and who share similar values of Design, interactive experiences and ethics.
Right now, I'm a UX/Visual Designer at Roku, designing for their mobile application. However, I'm currently open to freelance Visual Design or UX work on a per-contract basis.
I moved to California in January of 2017 from Portland, Oregon where I was most recently working at Intel. I'm excited to partner with inspiring teams and individuals whenever possible! 🙂
