Sean was a funny (read: humorous) coworker who had good, strong visions on marketing our brand and products. I was in the system administration/back-end developers’ group and Sean could talk our language, making communication easy. I recommend Sean for managing graphic design work across teams.
A seasoned product design leader focused on exponentially meaningful design outcomes.
From the foot of Mount Tamalpias in Marin County, California comes the next generation of creative output from an artist and designer who is young at heart, and driven to make a difference.
Sean Ross is a design generalist whose work exists at the cross section of art and design, concept and commerce.
Creative Direction. UX/UI. Strategy. Entrepreneurship. The next impossible dream.
Nice to meet you.
Macy’s Cross-Channel Redesign
In 2019-2020 I was a Principal UX Design Manager for Macys in San Francisco, where I helped lead a major redesign of Macy’s website and mobile app which improved user engagement and business KPI’s, and won numerous design awards.
Beyond Oblivion (Boinc) Music Service
The revolutionary music startup that almost was. You may not have heard of it, but in 2010 Beyond Oblivion was primed to be a real contender to the digital music service heavyweight title.
Sprout Social, Inc.,
25 Beacon Street,
Sean was a key member of a great creative team who was the go-to on a ton of creative projects with objectives varying from driving network traffic to increasing trial rates to profile completion, all during a time of huge growth for Yahoo! Personals and the emerging growth of the online dating category
If superior talent and personal integrity are important qualities in a potential employee for you, then there’s no question that Sean Ross is the perfect creative lead for your project. In a city where finding designers with talent isn’t that difficult, Sean offers something beyond that – character. He is an amazing designer who really listens to the needs of each client and is able to say in design what they cannot sometimes say in words.
Sean’s the guy you need to turn your product ideas into beautiful and intuitive consumer products. First, he’s deeply knowledgable. He’s a student of both the history of design and current trends and brings this knowledge into all his projects. Second, he’s a strong collaborator and is very effective at leading brainstorming, customer research, and design review meetings.
There’s no better recommendation than rehiring: Sean’s worked for me twice, and I will be hiring him again if I have the opportunity. At One Step Beyond, he had full ownership for all aspects of the visual design for client projects, working closely with Product Mgmt and UX teams to create compelling experiences that delighted our clients (and their customers), then with Engineering to implement those designs in an Agile/Scrum environment.
