Hi my name is Gavin. I’m a designer, strategist, and educator living and working in New York. Everything I do is about creating human connection. I specialize in user research, product strategy, and customer experience design.
As a professional practitioner, I have 14 years of experience driving digital innovation, product strategy and service design for Fortune 500 companies like Amex, Citizens, Facebook, Henkel, IBM, Idemia, Lenovo, Metlife, Samsung, Verizon and others.
I’m currently building Person, a people-first design company. As a boutique consulting business, we align business, products and services with people’s behaviors, motivations, and aspirations.
I also teach Lean user experience design at Columbia University, helping equip students with the process, skills and tools needed to develop new knowledge-driven digital products.
In the recent past, I was leading Experience Design at Co: Collective, a creative and strategic transformation company. Before that, I worked with IBM on their Cloud product and delivered powerful innovation workshops with IBM Watson. I’ve also taught design at Pratt Institute for 7 years and spoken at education and industry events including Parsons School of Design, Miami Ad School, and others.
Johnson and Johnson
Bye for now,
