My name is Rob Stone, I'm

AN INTERACTION DESIGNER, A USER-FOCUSED THINKER, A MOTION GRAPHICS ENTHUSIAST, EXCITED TO MEET YOU

About Me

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. 

User Empathy

I view every project as starting with understanding users, what their goals are and how my current project solves their problems. I’m experienced in semi-structured interviews as well exploring new techniques such participatory design to empathize with users from the very beginning of each new project.

Interaction Design

I pride myself on seeing beyond the static interface to seeing the system of interactions that build delightful products. My UI design style not only explores the visuals, but also the animations and microinteractions that bring the product to life.

Motion Design

Whether it’s prototyping a complex concept, building animations for a developer, or adding motion to client branding, my experience as a motion graphics designer allows me to bring unique value to your digital design project.
