Grant believes that a harmonious design—balancing the needs of the business, the people interacting through it, and the materials and environment—begins with an understanding of the ‘why.’ He is passionate about uncovering what is meaningful through listening, research, and analysis. He tells those stories through modeling to inform the creation of a place, a form, an app, or a system. Information architecture has been a beacon in Grant’s design work ever since he soaked in Information Architects by Richard Saul Wurman back in the 90’s.
Grant’s career started with a degree in Industrial Design from Carnegie Mellon and has evolved inevitably to UX in the 20+ years since. Grant uses his design and inquiry skills to make sure ‘why’ is represented in all manner of projects—from physical to digital, for small companies to international corporations. He enjoys walks on the beach and thorny, complex problems.
