Hello! I'm Daniel Chivardi,

UX Leader & Designer

About Me

I am a UX designer with more than 12 years of experience in product design and design consulting. During this time I've had the opportunity to wear a hat on pretty much every stage of the software life-cycle, including Development, Analytics, QA and UX. This exposure has allowed me to offer a multitude of perspectives on projects and has helped me cultivate new approaches and unique solution.

I currently manage a team, that I built from scratch, of five incredibly talented designers

What I do?

I consider myself a problem solver that enjoys the challenge of having constrained requirements, but I also welcome the opportunities to design visionary products that are not attached to technical limitations. I have had great mentors throughout my career and I have tried to spread that knowledge to designers I’ve had the chance to coach.


Some stuff I'm proud of.
