Ian Spangler, Digital Product Designer & Manager
I am a full-stack designer from New York City with deep experience in crafting custom websites and applications. A rigorous systems thinker with an entrepreneurial mindset, I’ve been delivering premium solutions to high-profile brands and startups for over 11 years, driving maximum value in the areas of interaction design, information architecture, UI design, iterative prototyping, and MVP development.
In my practice, I combine principles of user-centered design (UCD), human-computer interaction (HCI), game design, modular design, and content-first design strategies to create optimal user experiences, sometimes bringing solutions from concept to launch. Since co-founding and building the first major social platform for movie and TV show ideas several years ago, I have enjoyed guiding founders of early-stage startups in laying out and navigating the digital components of their businesses to maximize their potential.
I am currently looking to join a design-centric company focused on developing quality digital products that empower consumers to create, learn, explore, or have fun in new ways while supporting mindfulness and sustainability. I value being part of a collaborative, close-knit team where learning, experimentation, and attention to industry best practices are all encouraged.
