Hi, I’m Dan Knutson.

I’m a UX researcher and designer. I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the most well-respected brands across several industries. Sometime I’m hired to develop a solution in a vacuum with very little user knowledge. Other times I’m embedded within a large corporation with research teams, A/B testing systems setup and a slew of talented designers and engineers. I’m comfortable in either setting. While I’ve been interviewing users, wireframing concepts, testing prototypes and writing functional specs for 10+ years for startups, fortune 50s and everything in between, I’ve also …

  • Started, run and sold a handful of small companies.
  • Co-founded a non-profit.
  • Taught at an advertising portfolio school.
  • Spent a couple of weeks living in a Mayan village in the middle of Guatemala.
  • Traveled alone and in small groups. Sometimes successfully.

I thrive when others around me have passion for what they’re doing. I love to create and test new ideas. Seeing a new product come to life is exciting. Seeing others successfully use a product I designed is a spiritual experience in gratitude.

Looking for somebody like me? I’m probably looking for you, too. Reach out!
