Manny Darden -User Experience and Interaction Designer living in San Francisco.

Manny: The Designer

I’ve had a dynamic 10 year career designing print projects as well as digital interactive experiences. I’ve had the opportunity to work on projects for companies such as LucasFilms, LG Mobile, General Motors, Nissan, and Kaiser Permanente. My recent projects have been featured in Gizmodo, Design Boom, The Next Web, and The New Yorker, and have been recognized by the Adobe Design Achievement Awards in 2010 and 2011.

Part thinker, part maker – I utilize design thinking methods while introducing the benefits of existing and emerging technologies. My human centered process results in an ecosystem of solutions for multiple touch-points with the goal of enhancing the user experience. I received my MFA in Media Design from Art Center College of Design.

Manny: The Person

I can’t live without my friends, family, travel, my mobile device and a constant supply of caramel corn.

I’m a extremely considerate guest who leaves a home as kept as I would want others to leave my home.

I love traveling to metropolitan cities and immersing my self in the culture.

My Motto is more of a question: How do you want to be remembered?
