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 currently having a blast as a Product Designer with the LIGR
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.
A few additional case studies will be posted soon!
