I’m Rob Harrigan — a creative whose motivation and ethos can be summed up in two words, elbow grease. Growing up in a blue-collar town, I’ve always appreciated a hard day's work. It’s that passion that led me to excel as a freelance designer, senior in-house creative, creative lead at a world-class agency, and Design Principal at IBM in the Data & AI organization.

My expertise lies in my ability to find the perfect balance where brand, interface and content are powerful allies to the overall experience. My wanderlust background of experimental film making, visual design, storytelling, and branding, has created a unique skill set that has allowed me to discover my definition of great design.

Outside of the office, I'm never far from design & technology — whether creating work with my partner Stephanie in our studio, running our fashion start-up Kitschy Witch Designs™ or tinkering with Arduino, vintage electronics, and woodworking, or playing videos games with friends and hanging with my cat.
