Ensuring usability, helping understanding, and eliciting emotion and motivation all play a huge role. This realization led Dave to enthusiastically pursue the experiential side of design via the discipline of ux and digital product design. Along this career of discovery, Dave accumulated a diverse body of design achievement, some of which are displayed here.
