Hello!

I’m David Couet, a lead UX and product designer that helps product teams create impactful experiences for their users.

Ideally, I’m involved every step of the way as a member of a product team.

Typically, I’ve been a shared resource on a larger Digital team, pulled in to focus 100% on the two “Map...” and “Sculpt...” milestones and still having the necessary collaborative check-ins for the others.

Occasionally, I pinch-hit to bridge gaps for anything needed.

Who I am

I grew up in a small mid-western town and loved it. From jobs at the local grocery store and hobby farms, I worked hard to pay for my passionate love of BMX bikes and activities. If I was indoors I was listening to music while sketching and drawing. I also fell in love with learning BASIC programming and elected for a typing class so I could code faster.

Fast forward through five years in the U.S. Navy and a couple years of community college and a tech program, and I landed in the newly forming interactive new media industry; it was heaven.

From design to development, I’ve worn a number of hats in the digital space, and discovered that crafting the user experience was my sweet spot. It’s been my focus for the last ten years and I truly thrive on working with business partners and users of their systems to synthesize and deliver on a vision that meets requirements, exceeds expectations, and fulfills user’s needs.

TL;DR: I love the user experience “problem,” work hard, and deliver results.
