Vice President/ Director, Experience Design

OVERVIEW

UX Vice President/Director: Experience Design 

Our UX Directors at Digitas are strategic leaders who make digital products and services people love to use. They are collaborators who bring multidisciplinary teams together to set and drive a vision forward. Their backgrounds run the gamut from research to IA, ecomm to software, startup to agency. They are designers focused on creating the best possible experiences, who love making new things, and are exceptionally well versed in the practice of modern digital product creation. 

They empathize and solve user’s problems. They can take a complex and ambiguous client ask and lead a team in the right direction. They think strategically, and show clients that what they want is not necessarily what they need. They are exceptional storytellers. They are makers at heart, and are not afraid to jump in and get their hands dirty.
