Hi, I’m Damon Bakun — a multi-disciplinary Designer and Design Director living in “the city of brotherly love”. My experience includes design leadership and management, user experience design, product design, content strategy, research, workshop facilitation, art direction and creative direction.
During the last 17 years, I’ve worked with internal and external teams at design consultancies, luxury retail brands and Fortune 500 companies.
As a Designer, I focus on end-to-end problem solving that balances customer needs and business strategy, form and function. In addition to working on core products, I’ve also worked with innovation teams and have filed four patents.
As a Design Director, I partner with cross functional leaders to develop and hone business and experience strategies. In parallel, I work with my team to execute thoughtful and scalable solutions that bring strategy to life through experience design.
Outside of work, I’m a husband and dog dad to a rescue mutt unfortunately named “Isis”. I snowboard relatively well, play guitar pretty poorly, enjoy traveling (with a camera and drone, yes, I’m one of those guys) and generally try to be enthusiastic about trying new things in life.
My name spelled backwards is “nomad” which might be why I enjoy traveling and exploring new places. So far I’ve lived in 4 states and 2 continents, and traveled to 18 countries. I recently moved to Philadelphia, where I’m a Creative Director on the Xfinity Mobile Product and Experience Design team.
Portfolio and case studies available by appointment.
