John Wayne Hill's Bio:
I design compelling experiences.
I explore through prototyping.
I create with constraint.
Hi there, I'm John Wayne Hill. I’m a fearless Experience, Interaction, and Product Designer. I've lead teams from a project's start all the way to shipping. I enjoy designing for the uncommon (weird side of UX) and working on projects that aren’t so run of the mill. I've mostly worked with design agencies, so I’ve been through quite a few projects over the years. I have a Masters degree in Design (HCI/d) from Indiana University. My background is in design and computer sciences, so I can code a quick prototype when needed. I also enjoy the outdoors and an Old Fashioned.
John Wayne Hill's Experience:
Lead Interaction Designer at Idean
March 2015 - July 2016 | San Francisco, CA
At Idean I’ve lead multiple teams on multiple projects and enjoyed directing Interaction Design interns over the summer. I lead the interface design for a new consumer product for a large action camera company, working for over a year to bring the product to market from a mere idea. Lately I’ve lead the design for a multi-user, any size, multi-input, software which helps teams work together better both remotely and colocated.
