Designer for Print / UX / Web / Mobile
With 25 YEARS of international experience in print, interactive and user experience design, I've worked for BIG BRANDS that include Amazon, Starbucks, Microsoft, Vail Resort, Bed Bath & Beyond, Eddie Bauer and many more. I've lead projects for major initiatives in tech, retail packaging, branding and re-branding projects. I have also worked for ad agencies, design studios, the smallest start-ups, medium sized businesses, NPOs and NGOs.
Trained in the fine and applied arts I have a deep understanding of grid systems as applicable to visual design. This results in a visual communication that supports natural reading patterns and interfaces that are self descriptive - creating a cohesive, holistic, experience. Content is enriched with a sense of light, texture, sound, color that reaches all 5 Senses that engage the user.
Here are a few examples of my work.

Please note a significant percentage of my work is bound under NDAs - in particular, UX work for dektop & web appllications. See my resume to discuss specific roles I have played.
Gregor is singular in his passion for the best possible UX in terms of functional effectiveness and pleasure of the experience, while honoring the constraints of the project at hand. He works well with diverse teams and stakeholders, but will also warn you with candor when you're heading down a design road that will end in tears.
In practical terms, he's a master of many techniques and tools, and unlike some UX experts, he can deliver the design in formats that application developers can consume directly, thereby eliminating that awkward gap that can otherwise lead to unplanned design compromises and wasted time.
I've worked directly with Gregor at Aere Wellbeing, seen his excellent results with other teams, and have recommended him to colleagues that were relying on me for the right referral. He continues to be my go-to for UX.

Gregor is true to his craft, will give his best and deliver beyond. A creative thinker combined with an active listener I enjoyed working side by side with him navigating simple and mostly complicated strategic communication challenges. Should I ever need a person with his skill set I am glad to know that I have to look no further.

I had the opportunity to work with Gregor at Alere Wellbeing on a project to create a new internal coaching application for a client with custom needs. We collaborated together on user research, demographic analysis, and persona development. As a business analyst, he made my job easy - his experience and abilities as interaction designer provided more than just wireframes; he provided a full interaction model which was modularized to anticipate future needs and growth, interaction guidelines, and ux specifications, including accessibility considerations. Further, we had tight timelines and delivered a simple, rational, and elegant application in record time. I look forward to the next time I get an opportunity to work with him!

I had the opportunity to work with Gregor when he was a designer at Eddie Bauer. He is talented, creative and able to both think outside the box and implement usable solutions. While Gregor is passionate about innovation, he never loses sight of the business goals at hand. He has a great personality and always works hard to find the best solution to any problem.
