Nick Tilden

UX Designer

Austin, TX

I’m a UX and product designer who specializes in researching, designing, prototyping and testing new and existing user experiences. I have a proven track record of successfully leading teams, project management, and product strategy. My focus is solving problem through design and on delivering a quality product experience for all users. When I’m not designing I’m hanging out with my wife and new son, eating vegan food, running, or listening to music.
