For the past year I’ve been working with the product design team at Simple. They’re based in Portland but I’ve been working remotely from my lovely apartment in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. At Simple, I’ve helped design Expenses, a new Activity Feed and helped lead the Design Vision for the future of Simple's product features.
Before Simple, I was serving as Product Designer at Kickstarter in Brooklyn, NY. I lead the Backing feature team there, designing the new Checkout, Project page and Rewards selection flow.
Prior to moving to Brooklyn, I lived in San Francisco working as Product Designer at Teespring in San Francisco, CA. At Teespring, I helped design & build their new homepage, creator storefronts, design systems and other product releases.
Previous to Teespring, I lived in Chicago, IL. I had the opportunity to roll up my sleeves in client product development shops such as DevMynd and Codal as Product Designer and UI Engineer, perspectively. In Chicago, I also went to a tech school called StarterLeague where I graduated in a Visual Design and a Frontend Development program.
For more, here’s some my résumé and some snapshots of my work throughout the years. If you're looking for my portfolio, please get in contact below.
As a labor of love, I maintain a library of Product Design Resources. I share a lot of these resources with the students I mentor in the Design 101 and Interaction Design courses at Designlab. I also built a chrome-extension app called Elenco.
I'm also always available to hire for freelance work, so don't hesitate to reach out.
You can find me as @drocarmo on Twitter, Instagram, Medium, VSCO, Github, etc. If you're into sending emails, just remember to be nice.
