Hello, I’m Riki Tanone, an American expat Product Designer currently living in New Zealand. I create pleasant products that resonate with their users.
I'm on the lookout for remote opportunities to work with genuine, diverse people.
My introduction to the creative world was in illustration. It was how I fell in love with the craft to create things that bring joy to others.
I have freelanced, worked in a mom-n-pop shop, worked in a massive corporation, worked in an agency, and both failed and (mildly) succeeded at startups. I've worked individually, worked as part of a team, helped hire teams, and ran a team. I've been in this business long enough to have loved it and hated it in equal measure and I have come out appreciative of how mature the industry is growing.
