Introduction
We shape our tools and then our tools shape us (Marshall McLuhan, 1964)

I approach design as a primarily anthropological problem. Understanding culture. The problems I find most compelling involve fostering humanity in a technical space. I work and think visually, but self-involved design tinkering bores me. 

It excites me when clients have very high expectations. At Stellarvisions, we collaborate with our clients to understand their audience and craft the tool, the content, the message. We shape how information is organized, displayed, shared, and experienced. We create culture-driven tools™ that support and express core values.

Stellarvisions is always looking for new clients who have an interesting, challenging project. We'd love to collaborate with you.
