Christian Pugsley

Digital Product Design & Strategy
Info →
I am a ux designer, product strategist, front-end web developer, and adjunct professor.

But I prefer to say I am a design generalist and people specialist who just really likes solving problems. A designer whose sense of accomplishment comes from building transparent lines of communication for everyday people in large-scale systems and products, by leveraging relationships between design methods, education models, data analytics, privacy and legislation, psychology, and mental health.


This site is a showcase of my favorite work from the course of both my academic and professional careers, but if you’d like to see more, please reach out. 

Happy browsing.
