Mike Newbry  //  UX Designer

Hi there. I'm Mike.

Mike Newbry

UX Designer // MBA

I am an advocate for the user.

It’s my job to put myself in the user’s shoes and imagine being handed my product for the first time. Did my product just make their day better or worse?


I’ve been solving problems and delivering great designs for 15 years.

I’ve designed native mobile apps, responsive web apps, and even embedded hardware interfaces. My SaaS interfaces can be found controlling power grids in some of the world's largest data centers, and providing AI-powered analytics to more than half of all Fortune 500 companies.

I’ve held positions with global corporations and scrappy start-ups, and I’ve always made sure the stakeholders’ wants meet the users’ needs.

I’ve managed other designers both locally and remotely. I’ve worked with developers, researchers, and PMs in the same office, and I’ve worked with teams that are spread all over the world.

In other words...

This isn't my first rodeo.
