My name is Eric Powell. I am a UX/UI Designer based in Portland, OR.
I have been helping create beautiful, usable digital experiences and products for companies and brands like Nike, Apple, Coors, Molson, Sony, Nissan, Microsoft, adidas, razorfish, TBWAChiat Day and more for over 15 years. I am passionate about bringing delightful simplicity to complex projects that add value to people’s lives.
Eric isn’t just a very talented designer -he is much, much more! Eric takes the time to understand the user journey from every point of view. This helps to locate potential gaps in requirements. Then he will craft screens and user journey flows that are well thought out and balanced. Next he’ll bring the comps to the application’s users and gain valuable feedback he can incorporate back into his designs. With the help of his user testing and insights gained we were able to collectively build a better product by constantly iterating between the design & prototyping phase.Ben Jones
Working with Eric at Razorfish was a delightful experience. Eric is a great communicator and an amazing artist and UX master. I could always count on Eric to over deliver on creative while doing it on time and within budget. What I most like about Eric is that he is objective, calm, and rational when things get crazy. I would love to work with him again!Stephan Martinez
I have worked with Eric on and off since 2001 and highly recommend him. I first met him when I hired him at Media Arts Group where he had many roles including art direction, presentation layer development, and even some UX design for a ton of projects varying from online ads to 3-tier web sites. Eric is a veritable Swiss Army knife. He is extremely talented, incredibly efficient, and super fun to work with.Matt Bouchard
Eric understands the meaning of “The Medium is the Message”. That is, Eric is always going to measure his creative against the task that the user is trying to acomplish and make sure that the design is in line with those goals. He is a smart problem solver.Peter Duke
