It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

Hi there. My name is Kieran Evans. I'm a designer living in Philadelphia. I love it here. For the past few decades, I've been designing digital experiences like responsive websites, transactional (workflow-focused) applications,  native and mobile web applications, secure customer experiences, and design systems that are visually compelling and easy to use. I spend my days as a Design Director at EY-Intuitive, a user-centered research, design, and development company.

Throughout my career, I've had the opportunity to design experiences for a wide range of clients, such as the Pew Charitable Trusts, PNC, Comcast, BBVA Compass, Merrill Lynch, Pfizer, and Nationwide. I've presented to leading industry organizations including the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA), and Interaction Design Association (IxDA). I'm currently presenting on the topics of Shallow Interaction Design and Augmented Reality.


Things I'm Good At

  • Defining a strategic vision: articulating research findings into design concepts
  • Detailed design: creation of various schematics to describe workflow/content/taxonomy, wireframes, aesthetics, prototypes
  • Design system definition: establish consistent digital interaction patterns, style guide, components, themes driving digital brand, choreography of motion
  • Create experiences that prioritize user needs and achieve business objectives
  • Native iOS/Android app design
  • Creative direction of design deliverables
  • Process/UX best practices
  • Lead creative working sessions
  • Mentorship/Inspiration
