It’s almost impossible to find a single person who can think at 10,000 feet and 10 feet off the ground in the same day. I’d highly recommend Ian to anyone trying to drive revenue by connecting their customer to the product in a more meaningful way.
— Gabe Cooper, CEO of Virtuous

 

I design and market digital products that solve big problems and are delightful to use.

You need a proven process that sparks creativity while getting stuff done. That's what I bring to the table.

User experience

I believe in staying Lean and Agile. I use a powerful Design Thinking process:  research, prototype, validate, rinse and repeat. Like you, I have no interest in spending weeks building experiences that wind up being great at the wrong things. User-Centered Design processes and a commitment to validate assumptions with the target audience are at the core.

User interface

I use rapid prototyping and usability testing to discover what interfaces are best, not just in theory but in reality. I also prefer to work closely with the engineering team to find solutions that are cost-effective.

Product marketing

I apply many of these tools––plus user research and market research––to help companies better understand customer journeys and rapidly improve their product marketing strategy and funnels.

Experience, preferred projects, and rates

I have 12 years of applied experience in digital product design and marketing, including seven years as a team leader. My underlying passion is helping people, bettering lives, and solving big problems. I prefer to work intensively on two or three big projects per year, embedding with the team and giving my whole focus to their success. My rates vary based on the duration and terms of the contract, and any stock options, cryptocurrency, tokens, or profit-sharing that are part of the compensation.
