Oh, hello. I didn’t see you there.

My name is Gavin and I’m a designer and facilitator. I’m the founder of a design company called Person. My home is in Beacon, New York with my partner Lily, our puppy Maddy, and our little grey kitten, Lucy. I like to go hiking, bake bread, and fix things. At this very moment, I’m reading a book, or two and likely hiking near Lake Canopus.

In the recent past, I was leading Experience Design at Co: Collective and before that I worked with IBM on their Cloud product and helped design and facilitate workshops with IBM Watson.

I help companies work smarter and develop products faster.

Organizations are looking for the secret sauce that helps move teams at the speed of innovation. Along with working patterns, I also help companies identity opportunity areas, align on a future vision, and launch new products and services.

Recently, I redesigned a smart city software application for a top-10 Fortune 500 company. Cool, right? I also created ideation tools and facilitated workshops for a $60m software startup in Brooklyn. Just last year, I helped develop the go-to-market strategy for IBM’s Enterprise Blockchain SaaS offering, launched ACLU’s new membership onboarding, and helped facilitate MetLife’s global design thinking workshop curriculum. Other notable projects include redesigning Samsung’s shopping cart, Samsung’s CenterStage, IBM Cloud design system, IBM Watson Value Framework, and Amex Music’s live event launch. As an educator, I taught design at my alma mater, Pratt Institute, for 7 years. I’ve also been featured at Parsons School of Design, Miami Ad School, and others.

Want to say hello? Email me. I like getting messages. Or need advice? Book free time on my calendar.

Bye for now,
