Chase Bratton — Senior Product Designer with 11 years of experience.
“Never underestimate how the fundamentals of design can improve any product.”
I’ve worked as a designer across mediums & companies. I grinded as a freelancer while work nights/weekends at bars. I took gigs as a print designer producing 500+ page RFPs with the budget to only make a single print run. I’ve designed video games, global mobile order and payments systems, new products from scratch and rebuilt broken ones after neglect. I strongly value being the designer in the room that does not let ego get in the way, and truly functions as a team with my product, engineering, research and cross-functional partners. The design IS THE WORK, but it takes the relationships and team dynamic to get there.
I believe what I uniquely bring to a team is a generative, open-minded approach to designinig products. No idea is too precious and no team member off limits from the process. I exemplify a strong point of view with my new work through showing and communicating, a balancing act that requires continued refinement of craft and people skills to deliver the best product.
Some companies I have brought this energy to are Starbucks, Facebook, Google, Etsy, Deloitte, Amazon, HP, Nintendo, RollingStone, Kiewitt.
