A BRIEF INTRO

Hi there, I’m Nelson – a design leader with a strong background in creative direction, user experience, IxD, visual design, and management. Welcome to 3.6.75 Design – my little corner in the world wide web to house all my thoughts and showcase my work.

 

I’ve been designing digital products and leading design teams for small to mid-sized startups for over 10+ years. Before this, I ran 3.6.75 Design which was an interaction design agency. Throughout this time I had the privilege to work with companies such as CISCO, ADM, Wells Fargo, Tippett Studios, and Whil Concepts just to name a few. Today, I’m one of the lead product designers at Upwork, and from time to time I advice seed-funded startups to help them get started.

At heart, I am a relentless problem solver – a practitioner of an iterative process that helps me understand the user, challenge my assumption, and redefine the problems I’m solving in an attempt to identify alternative strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent. By developing a deeper understanding of the people for whom we are designing, we will develop empathy for our audiences, which will lead us to identify the right product solution to address their needs.

 

Feel free to explore around, check out my work, my resume, and see what I’m up to.
