Tommy Dietz

Experience Design Leader in Atlanta, GA

Designer of human experiences for over 15 years, the last 8 years focused within the retail vertical at scale. My passion is helping to create engaging experiences, exceeding both business objectives and unconscious human usability objectives through research based techniques and human validation.

I possess a unique combination of expertise in visual design, usability, user experience (UX) design, user research, information architecture, user interface (UI) design, front-end development and strategy. I also offer the rare ability to communicate complex technical topics and solutions to non-technical audiences through many different visual mediums. Having worked in a variety of different business industries, markets and enterprises, I’m comfortable wearing many hats and seamlessly adapting to any company culture. I thrive when faced with complicated challenges and eagerly welcome experience design challenges.
