David Shinabarger text

Hi, I'm David.

I'm a curious product designer and researcher that moves slow and builds things that are interactive, immersive, accessible, and human-first.

A man with medium blonde hair stands in front of Lake Superior. The image is black and white and he is holding his hair on top of his head with his right hand. He's wearing a buttoned up plaid shirt.

About me

I bring human scaled solutions to some of the world's biggest problems and my diverse background enables us to collaborate in finding innovative solutions. Outside of work I love exploration and all things outdoor adventure and travel.

I graduated with a Master's of Science in Information in UX Research and Design from the University of Michigan's School of Information. I completed Detroit's Grand Circus Bootcamp and hold a B.A. in Global Studies from Spring Arbor University.


See some of my favorite examples of projects I've had the joy to work on. The collection includes professional, academic, and personal pieces.
