I’m Rob, a Boston-based interaction designer that excels at merging the functional with the delightful. I’ve loved crafting things ever since I was a kid building swords in my dad’s woodworking shop. I was drawn to digital design because of the ever evolving nature of the products. This constant iteration makes the work feel alive and keeps me exploring.
Because of my motion graphics background, I view all my work as kinetic, knowing that digital products today cannot be static. For this reason I think of empathy as not just designing for the user’s needs but also considering the touchpoints where my work can bring up all those warm fuzzy feelings. My design aesthetic considers not just what the user sees but they ways in which the product can anticipate their behavior and react to their choices for simplicity, not just in visuals, but also in execution.
Pilfer Pebble is my superhero alter ego based on synonyms for Rob and Stone. He mostly saves people from the dangers of an extremely common name. When I’m not at my desk, you’ll find me biking, playing disc golf, or home brewing a new experimental beer.
Want to chat? Drop me a line, I’m always down to chat about all kinds of design, meet new people, and grab some coffee.
