Hi! I’m Garrett, a product designer based in Chicago. I create user-friendly digital experiences for fast-growing startups.
Faster, better products that your users love. Here's all the services I provide:
Every designer needs the right tools to do the perfect job. Thankfully, I'm multilingual.
I design products that are more than pretty. I make them shippable and usable.
As Senior Product Designer at Chroma Chameleon, a firm specializing in web and app design and development, I am responsible for all UX and UI design for our clients. I've worked on projects for startups and Fortune 500 companies alike, and I have a lot of experience in end-to-end product design.
There's more to design than just aesthetics. It's about solving problems too. And that's what drives me: the desire to solve complex problems and make the world a better place through considerate, well-designed applications. I have a strong sense of empathy for users, and I'm always looking for ways to make their lives easier. I also believe in collaboration and feedback, and I'm always open to suggestions and critiques. My goal is to create beautiful and effective designs that people will love using.
When I'm not working you can find me tinkering with my 3D printers, building furniture, or cooking up something new in the kitchen. When I get the chance, I love exploring new places around the world with my wife, Ellie!
I usually work on B2C software, that's my forte--where I shine best. But I also have about 15 B2B software products in my portfolio. I do end-to-end product design + branding.
I only charge hourly for my ongoing projects that need work on the regular. One-time projects are charged upfront to keep it transparent and clean! My hourly rate is $150.
I work Central Standard Time.
Depends on the scope of the project, really. Some projects take less than a week. Some take months. The best way to find out is to get on a quick call with me, and discuss it. No strings attached!
I quote a price upfront--so that you know exactly what you're paying and for what, and there are no surprises later. The exact cost of your project depends on the scope and requirements!
I take a problem-forward approach. Whether we're iterating on an existing product or building a new one from scratch, how to solve the user's problem in the simplest way possible is my first concern.
Send me an email to understand my process in depth!
The best metrics are customer adoption, happiness, task success, and engagement. There are a number of frameworks such as the System Usability Scale that help us understand product performance and I'm happy to help with that.
I always make sure to help out my clients one month after the project ends, for free. For any help post that, we can work out an ongoing arrangement!
