David Harthcock

Product / Front-End Designer

In the past 14 years I have co-founded two design agencies, lead and managed design teams, and designed and built countless interfaces. I am currently living in Colorado working remotely for Big Cartel as a Senior Product Designer.

On my journey as a designer, I have seen a lot of evolution in technology. It's never just been designing experiences for one type of product or device. As new technologies give way to new interactions, I continue to adapt and apply my past experiences to my design process as I continue to design for new technologies.
