Dylan has taste.

Dylan has taste, and that taste materialized in the quality of the products he launched (3 Howser demos). When execution becomes commodity, developing taste to know WHAT to create becomes a crucial skill. And Dylan has that skill. He used new ideas and methods to bring demos to life through complex prototypes that brought GMs recognition and trust. He always tries any new thing even in the face of data.

Bias for action.

Dylan has a well-rounded set of design skills, and his visual design abilities set him apart from many of his peers. But the super power that stands out for me was his bias for action. Dylan is willing to get started when other's might still be gathering requirements and analyzing the problem.

Up to help out on a whim and run with concepts

Dylan! Thank you for your help with the new illustration for catalog. You were up to help out on a whim, have run with the concepts I shared, proactively consulted other designers, incorporated ideas from our team, helped with styling guidance, and have connected our devs with code for the different themes. I'm looking forward to seeing it in production. Thanks for your help!

Earning trust across all teams involved.

Dylan's super-powers are Ownership, Earns Trust and his technical skill. He successfully delivered on multiple UX designs for the Howser team, including the Howser/Bedrock AI Stylist, which was challenging not only technically, but also invited a lot of last minute feedback that Dylan had to quickly iterate over to ensure launch timelines could be met, while in parallel, earning trust across all teams involved.

Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail shine through

The amount of explorations, wireframes, and hi-fis on our Freehand is indicative of the amount of work put forth to help build out the customer journey. Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail shine through in the final playback, as our work was the basis for that awesome final video.
