01. I want to find a job that I love. Things I already love: designing innovative products, empowering people, and improving the world.
02.   Daniel Kuo Consulting 04/10 - present

I work with clients both large and small—from startups looking for their initial funding to large corporations looking to redefine the next generation of their products. I help my clients plan design strategy, conduct research, generate interaction models, and create detailed visual interfaces.

Huge 01/13 - 05/13

I joined Huge, a full-service digital agency with user experience as its focus, as Experience Director for their newly created San Francisco office. I owned our premier client project, leading the interaction design and strategy efforts for a mobile-focused product, and worked alongside developers to produce real working code. I was supported by, and mentored a team of talented UX designers, and actively developed new processes and deliverables for the office.

Thomson Reuters 05/12 - 01/13

Thomson Reuters, a former consulting client, invited me to establish the design practice for their Investment Management group. As Senior Director of User Experience, I guided the design of all our products from concept to delivery. I led a team of interaction and visual designers and worked with product managers, developers and senior executives to create solutions that supported our users' goals and responded to business needs.

Cooper 01/05 - 03/10

As a Senior Design Consultant, I developed visual strategies for our clients’ products and executed on them to create persona-based, user-centered interfaces. Working as an integral part of the interaction design team, I saw the design through from start to finish; beginning with user research and ending with detailed pixel specifications in a visual style guide.


Adspace Networks Inc. 04/03 - 12/04

In my role as Motion Graphics Designer I designed and produced broadcast-quality content for the CoolSign media system—a network of high definition plasma screens placed in theaters, retail locations, and other venues.

Nanz Inc. 12/01 - 10/02

As the Lead Designer, I was responsible for creating all of Nanz's advertising, marketing, and catalog materials, as well as overseeing website development. This role involved extensive studio photography, which has been featured in publications such as Bergdorf Goodman and World of Interiors.





My background is in visual design & branding, and my core strength lies with working in a hybrid visual-interaction role.

I have led interface design and branding efforts over a wide range of digital products across several domains, including: mobile, medical, financial, enterprise, and consumer products. My print experience includes magazine ads, environmental graphics, and book design.

I am experienced in managing clients, leading teams, supporting development, and mentoring junior staff. I have teaching experience in a university environment.

I have trained as a photographer, and I have worked with small, medium, and large formats, in both film and digital systems.
