HELLO,

I'M BRYCE.

I was born and raised in the beautiful beach town of San Luis Obispo, CA. I worked
for years as a freelance graphic designer, but found that I desired a more hands-on approach, which transitioned me into Product Design. While at Art Center I eventually branched out into the newly-launched major of interaction design. This opened up a whole new world for me; I not only get the opportunity to create beautiful products, but
I also design how we interact with these products and the experiences they create.

 

Pursuing a newfound passion for Interaction Design, I did two diverse internships. First with CBS Television as a UI/UX designer, where I helped create the CBS Apple TV and Android TV apps; both of these products recently debuted. I also worked with Honda R&D in Los Angeles as a UI/UX intern, working on the Interfaces for an innovative, new concept vehicle for the Acura brand, named the Precision Concept, which also recently debuted.

 

As a designer, I always strive to find quality in the imperfections of process and believe the products we touch and interact with should not only excite and inspire,
but also spark curiosity through the engagement of a new experience.
