I’m Quinn Keast, a user experience & product designer.
The nitty gritty
I enjoy crafting new user experiences and working to make existing ones perform better. The processes and thinking involved in creating digital products through human-centred design are immensely satisfying.
I have more than 13 years of expertise that covers the entire human-centred design process: from research and strategy to finished interface design and front-end development. My background is in design, which is complemented by a lifetime of tinkering with digital tools, languages, and technologies.
In 2011, I co-founded Caribou, a user experience strategy and design consultancy that works with product teams and organizations to make better products and experiences.
Aside from all that, I’m a Canadian currently working out of Berlin, and I enjoy playing Ultimate frisbee, bouldering, writing, and baking macarons.
Want to know about my guiding values and how I work as a human? I’ve created a Quinn.ReadMe that acts as a user guide for me.
