More about Allison
When not engaged with her studio of expert partners for full-spectrum projects, Allison is available for independent consulting.
Fusing art, design, and technology is Allison's passion. With a Cornell background in studio art, coupled with nearly 20 years of visual and UX design experience at top startups, agencies, and consumer goods industry leaders, she lives and breathes design.
Allison knows the ins and outs of interaction and product design for web/desktop and mobile, and has an innate talent for combining killer visuals with solid user experience design. She also understands code, and can easily communicate with developers, execs, product managers, and creatives.
Her strength comes from working with interdisciplinary and cross-functional teams, and she has enjoyed opportunities to do so at the some of the most successful companies in the world.
Splitting time between the Pacific and the Sierras, our love for the outdoors leads us to clear thinking and thus, solid design solutions. Mountain living, blue skies, and local community are all important pillars of our life/work balance.
We strive to use our problem-solving and design thinking skills for social good. Tackling projects that help people do things better, or that benefit the world, our community, and generations to come, is paramount.
We strive for and foster a work/life balance, with the goal to equally prioritize the demands of our careers with the demands of our personal lives. And to have heaps of fun while doing so.
As a seasoned team of interdisciplinary thinkers, we have the expertise to help you elevate your brand, improve your digital presence, and propel your business to the next level.
