Paul Gifford

Senior User Experience Designer

Paul is focused on helping companies create new experiences and building solutions that combine a considered approach with emerging technologies. He is excited by design’s ability to improve real human needs and believes great insights can be achieved by active research and observation. He comes from a versatile skillset, including interaction design, creative development, art direction, and video production.

Prior to joining Whipsaw, he worked as a designer for various startups and innovative brands like Google, Atlassian and Adobe. When Paul is not at work you can find him roaming around Oakland, rock climbing, or grabbing a burrito. He is never bored unless you deny him art supplies, camera, or a passport.
