New tools in product design make for exciting industry chatter, but tools alone aren’t a substitute for skill and experience. In this article, we evaluate how to approach new tools and how they fit into the product designer’s toolbox.
Eric StrubingerSenior Product Designer
Eric has made it out of his small town, and for this he is proud. After all, his high school graduating class was only 32 people. Though he never did become Robin Hood (his kindergarten aspiration) - as far as we know - he’s also not a toll booth collector, he doesn’t man the lost baggage desk at the airport, and he doesn’t have to clean porta potties, all things he would find to be the worst job. Instead, he’s one of our own: Senior Designer at Devbridge.
When he’s not creating and designing at Devbridge, Eric is an avid musician. He’s written and recorded two studio albums, collects guitar gear, and wouldn’t mind giving guitar lessons someday. He also collects shot glasses (uses them, too), enjoys crab legs, and is an enthusiast when it comes to surreal/abstract art, minimalist web design, portrait illustrations and photography. He’s driven by goals, progress and the desire the make something great.

We are dedicated to the great task remaining before us – can we determine if sophisticated animation in UI is a fading trend, or is it the future of web and product design interactions?
How many people can honestly say their profession improves the way society consumes information and performs daily tasks? As Interaction designers, we’re lucky enough to do this everyday. Our job is to make intuitive software and apps and efficiently relay information to the user.
