My name is Dylan Fox and I practice empowering design.

Technology offers incredible powers, but it always starts as experts-only. Design is what makes technology useful for everyone. It’s the difference between punch cards that take weeks to learn and touch interfaces that a toddler can use; between a lump of glass and silicon and a device that lets us create and communicate on a scale never seen before.

I live at the center of user needs, technological capabilities, and stakeholder requirements. I help organizations and individuals design products that let their users make the most of modern platforms and emerging technologies.

I dream of a future where people of all backgrounds can use intuitive, affordable technology to make the world a better place.
