Brendan is a visual design director specializing in UI/UX and general product design stuffs, and is absolutely not three cats stacked on top of each other in a trench coat.
Pulling from 10+ years of experience in the UI/UX field and his background in illustration and animation, he quickly but thoughtfully builds mockups and flows for all edge cases. He works closely with developers, diving into HTML, CSS, and Git without hesitation.
If you’re feeling lost in the ever-expanding UX field, with questions about best UX practices, software quirks, or design trends, Brendan has created Figma55. This ongoing series of short tutorials cuts to the meat and potatoes of Figma plugins, tools, and more. Who has time for an explanation that’s longer than a minute? How do you even have time to read this very bio? Mercifully, his minute-long tutorial brand is expanding to other branches of the industry, including Ruby55, where you can learn bits of the programming language Ruby in small chunks!
Brendan has contributed to projects across the spectrums of scale and complexity:
His work on platform for the CDC and WHO enabled country planners to prepare for infectious diseases including COVID-19. For Truveon’s HVAC smart building sensing systems, he led design on three distinct platforms for on-site technicians, service managers, and building owners.
He teamed up with Stanford bio-med engineers to help kids suffering from night terrors sleep soundly, cultivated a bread baking collective and sourdough lid growth tracker with IoT culinarians, and completed super-secret, high-security project for a Fortune 50.
