I’m James S.E. Riggs, a UX/ Product designer and educator currently working in Chicago. My philosophy is really quite simple; to create meaningful relationships through design.
I’ve worked for various startups in the Midwest, helping companies establish process and scale their business. In 2016, I took an education position where I could give back to the design community and teach aspiring designers the fundamentals of UX, UI, IA, and IXD. As of 2017, I have taught and mentored over a hundred junior designers and counting.
In my “down time”, I love to play music, take on freelance design projects and enjoy building things with my hands. When I don’t have tools, musical instruments or a computer in my hands, you can usually find me at Montrose Beach playing with my dogs or lounging on my couch consuming the Criterion Collection.
I’m currently accepting contract work and product design positions.
