about chris kirkman

With over fifteen years’ experience in UX, UI, visual/graphic, and web design, Chris held positions such as Head of Design and Creative Director with an extensive background leading and working hands-on within many product and creative teams of large, publicly traded, and small startup sizes. His user-centered designs bring simplicity, a strong attention to detail, with usability held of high importance. He also codes responsive, standards-compliant websites using HTML5 and CSS3.

He co-founded two startups, one of which published a well noted digital business card mobile app, uME, for iOS devices. He previously was the local chapter President of SDXD (formerly SandCHI), one of the two largest UX (User Experience) design organizations in San Diego.

Chris loves the ocean, adventure, and travel. When time allows, you can find him and his wife taking their ocean kayaks out, headed along a trail to the top of a mountain, or flying to new place to visit.
