Working with Daniel was always a delight. He was prepared to assist with feedback, examples, ideas or even something as simple as pointing me in the right direction. Daniel had great ideas to increase productivity and communication across the broader design team. He was always involved and engaged in conversations during our pin-up meetings and open to feedback when given. Daniel’s design work was well thought out and great looking. His work was based on iterative design methodology and he knew how and when to test his design work to achieve the best experience.

Samuel Stesney

UX Designer, Tylenol

As a content strategist, I worked closely with Daniel integrating content with UX/design. Daniel is great to work with! He is very collaborative, open to feedback, and could quickly turn ideas/brainstorms into a prototype, which was very helpful. He always has the consumer’s needs in mind when designing and was proactive in thinking about how we could continuously improve the user experience. Since content and design are so closely connected, I appreciated how Daniel made sure content was part of the design process from the beginning and how changes and feedback were quickly, efficiently, and strategically incorporated into the design.
