Hey! My name is Erik Kennedy, and I’m an independent UX + UI designer in beautiful Seattle, WA.
My clients have ranged from startups to Fortune 100, and have included companies like Soylent, Amazon, Roam Research, and more.
I’ve spoken here and abroad at businesses, meetups, and universities (like UC Berkeley and Yale). In addition, my design writing has been read by over a million people.
But before all that, I was in school for engineering. That’s right – a developer. So when I first tried my hand at design, I thought I was doomed.
It looked awful.
Of course, I had my excuses. I didn’t go to art school. I didn’t know crap about aesthetics.
