Brian Leach

Senior UX & Industrial Designer

Brian joined Whipsaw in 2014 and he’s been wildly busy ever since, working on exciting projects for clients like Samsung, Sandisk, Miroculus, OM Signal, Viveo Labs and TP-Link. His design for the TP-Link Quarter camera won a 2016 Red Dot Award.

With a strong interest in research and how it informs design, Brian always approaches the design practice from a humanistic perspective, and he especially enjoys figuring out what makes people tick. He observes behavior, uncovers pain points, digs for emotional insights then synthesizes these elements of need into tangible solutions.

Previous to his career at Whipsaw, Brian worked as a designer at Astro Studios. He was also a machinist where he learned about materials and the importance of working with one’s hands. Brian graduated from California College of the Arts with a BFA in Industrial Design. Outside of work, you might find Brian surfing, rock climbing, cycling, building furniture, cooking, or brewing an artistic cappuccino.
