I'm Jeff Appel.
I am a Sr. Product and Experience Designer.
I bring an extensive background to design that includes design thinking and strategy, user interviews and research, interactive design, and UX writing and copywriting. I meld those components into a seamless user-centered process that connects humans to ideas, to objects, and to each other.
I love to read and to learn. Concerning my uber-nerdy theoretical interests, I enjoy reading and thinking about the philosophy of technology, cultural theory, media theory, and semiology (or the study of signs and symbols). I am preoccupied with the relationship between the things we create and use, and how human memory changes in relationship to them.
Less esoterically, I enjoy making music, doing dad stuff with my kids, drinking good coffee, and wandering around used bookstores.
