Hi, I'm Garrett

Hi, I’m a multi-disciplinary product designer with 7+ years of experience specializing in interaction design, visual design and user experience. Oh and I code, too!

There is no better feeling in the world than showing a client or their customers the work I've done for them and hearing them say, "WOW!" I'm a product designer who's obsessed with creating these moments.Because ultimately, whether through breathtaking visual design, intuitive user experience,  incredible interactions, or just really clean code, my goal as a product designer is to always get to "WOW!"

Currently, I'm leading the design development and digital launch for Grateful Coffee Co., a startup coffee shop in Springfield, IL. I'm leveraging my UX skills combined with my visual design skills to create an effortless customer experience with our website, mobile app, digital loyalty programs, and online ordering system.

Before this, I was a product designer with the Chamberlain Group, the parent company of LiftMaster. I worked with the product team to develop a responsive design system for their new dealer portal. Outside of this, I lead an app and web design studio called Chroma Chameleon alongside lead engineer, my business partner, and my spouse, Ellie Sadler. I'm a pretty lucky guy! 

I started my design career 11 years ago as a graphic designer in the advertising industry. As web and mobile experiences became more and more integral to my work, I experienced an organic transition into designing digital products. 7 years ago, I left advertising and moved entirely into web and mobile product design.

Did I mention that I code?
It's true! As a product designer who can prototype in html, css and JS, I have a deep understanding of how to structure my designs to make sense to an engineering team. I believe in starting every project with an underlying system in mind and building beautiful, compelling experiences around the structures of that system.

When I'm not working

I’m a true maker at heart. When I’m not designing, you can find me making…something. I love building furniture, 3d printing and cooking, heck, even building Ikea prefabs scratches that itch. Right now, I’m building a photogrammetry rig for rapid, high-resolution 3d scanning of a person or object. I’m at my most zen when I’m wrist-deep in a project.

I also LOVE to talk about pop culture, especially comics, movies, and video games. I could spend HOURS talking about why the Johnathan Hickman run is the best thing to happen to the X-men in 20 years.
