Visionary leader, translational designer, brand and strategy socializer, creative catalyst -- Frank Brown leads diverse teams through uncharted territory of electrification and autonomous vehicles -- to uncover design insights and create compelling UX toolsets and solutions – Roadmaps, Enabling frameworks and UX Principles.

From his introduction to a T-Square as a child to his passion for automotive and the Model T, to product design at Intel and Nike and a radical career pivot back to automotive, Frank has been helping people move strategies, design frameworks and tools – and ultimately bytes, bodies and vehicles -- for decades.

Driving his career is a passion for automotive and mobility – both as a pressing need that really matters in people’s lives, and on a professional level for the “really meaty design challenges” that continue to evolve.
