Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ Iโ€™m Bryan... a data-informed product design leader focused on making B2B SaaS products more human

Who I've worked with...

How Iย work...

๐Ÿ“Š Data, research, and testing

Quantitative, qualitative, and even anecdotal information are all part of the equation. Three years building the growth team and PLG motion at a product analytics company will do that to you ๐Ÿ˜€

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ Mentoring and enabling other designers

Leveling up the whole team is the fastest way to level up a product. When everyone is on the same page and moving in the same direction, everything becomes easier

๐Ÿข Connecting business and user goals

Closely aligning customer value and revenue generation makes everyone happier. Transparent pricing, upsells, and expectations build trust and create repeat customers and advocates.

The big stuff

๐Ÿง  Involving the whole team from the start

Every person has a different perspective and knowledge set. Each of those are necessary to target the right problem and get to the right solution... plus would it be a real design portfolio without saying something about "first-principles"?

โœ… Sweating the small stuff

Quick wins, paper cuts, polish, design debt... whatever you call them, they matter. Every piece of a product that isn't designed is still a design choice. Here's more about how Iย approach this.

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Motion, animation, and micro-interactions

These subtle cues not only make a product more inviting, they can actually make it easier to use. I literally taught the course on this stuff (and have had >3000 designers sign up!)

The little stuff

Who I am...

How I got here

Thought I was going to become an ๐Ÿ—๏ธ architect

Became a ๐Ÿ’ป digital product designer because architecture is ๐Ÿ›๏ธ 90% bureaucracy and ๐ŸŽจ 10% design

Did startups in the ย ๐ŸŒ Bay Area, freelance in ๐Ÿ”๏ธ Alaska, and remote work in ๐Ÿฆž Maine

Who I am outside of work

Design is a big part of my personal life as well as my professional life. Iโ€™m certainly biased, but Iโ€™ve designed some pretty cool stuff outside of digital products too ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Any given weekend, thereโ€™s probably a pretty good chance Iโ€™m wandering around the ๐ŸŒฒ woods, playing with my ๐Ÿถ dog, or riding my ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ bike.

So, now what? Letโ€™s chat!
