New Hires

June 9, 2016

As Tactile has grown, our team has expanded to accommodate new projects and deepening relationships with partner clients. We recently brought on two new additions to the team: Christoffer Hart, user experience (UX) designer, and Taylor Thomas, industrial designer.

Christoffer adds support to our growing UX team. “The marriage between industrial and UX design is one of the reasons why I came here,” Christoffer says. “To a certain extent, the disciplines merge in many ways. The benefit is a different form of empathy you create for the user. I think those two varying perspectives on the same thing is really valuable. You get really amazing projects out of that.”

Taylor is looking forward to working on projects that rely on deeply understanding both the client and consumer: “It gets me really excited about it to think about the fact that I could be working on something that’s actually going to make a change. I came from … a product development firm, but a very different environment,” she says. “They’re about 30 engineers and three designers. I’m really excited to be in this environment—to be back in a place that just lives and breathes design. It’s exciting, it’s exhilarating.”
