Jesús Gorriti may have 12 years of experience in interaction design, but he’s secretly a magician. He’s passionate about finding the most innovative design solution: one that captures user needs, strengthens a client’s business and pushes technology until it seems to have disappeared, thus becoming indistinguishable from—that’s right—magic. As Fjord’s Service Design Director in the US, he leads a team of over thirty designers to ensure outstanding work and the overall success of Fjord’s clients. Jesús has a few tricks up his sleeve to help Fjord designers achieve their best work: transparency, efficiency, and happiness. He believes in open dialogue, using the right tools to achieve timely problem-solving, and keeping the work meaningful and exciting for everyone. Jesús’s wizardry expands far beyond interaction design though; he has worked on everything from strategy to product development, providing a unique perspective and deep understanding of how digital products are made.
