Hey there—I’m Zack. I’m a passionate product designer & developer currently based in St. Louis, Missouri. I’ve spent the last five years utilizing design & technology to build products that solve complex problems.

About me

Back to top

I’m Zack Schwartz, a developer-turned-product designer currently solving problems for small businesses at RYSE Digital. I enjoy applying the design process to complex problems and carving out interesting and useful solutions.

I started my career 5 years ago as a freelance front-end web developer. After some time creating website for small businesses, I found myself gravitating towards the process of researching, iterating, and validating. Now I consider myself a designer who uses code as a tool to build prototypes for quicker iterations and better end products.

My background in development has given me a unique perspective on the developer-designer relationship that has shaped my skills and interests. I do my best work in the gap between these two disciplines. Specifically, I’m interested in design systems, prototyping, and UI engineering.

If you have any questions, want to talk about possible work, or just want to talk, feel free to send me an email or a message on LinkedIn.

Case studies coming soon
