I have to share our incredible experience with Ian! Before he came on board, we'd worked with six agencies and three in-house designers. Honestly, we thought we knew what to expect in product design. Then Ian walked in, and wow, did he shake things up for the better! Ian's skill in conducting user interviews and his ability to dive deep into problem-solving are unparalleled. His designs are not just visually stunning but are infused with functionality and user empathy. He has a unique talent for bringing designs to life, making them feel tangible and relevant. We are immensely impressed by his work.
