Hello.

My name is Nick Woods. I've been called a Design Director, Art Director, Design Strategist, UX/UI, Product and Motion (2D & 3D) Designer. I’ve got 20 years of experience (universities, agencies, start-ups, clients, corporations, running my own agency), ranging from mobile, web, retail, broadcast, editorial, brand, and print. I have good Front-End chops HTML/CSS/SASS, and I like experimenting with javascript libraries like three.js & Processing, and creating design systems in Figma.


My philosophy:
I'm a generalist who can specialize. I like to join organizations I believe in, find out what they need, and fulfill that need. That could mean highly polished visual design, prototyping and UX, facilitating design thinking, mapping service design flows, user research, or managing people and leading teams. I love messy processes, efficiency, and solving real world problems.

Currently I'm a Director of Product Design for Matterport, working on fundamentally improving how we interact with the physical world.
