Brandon Wade Oxendine
Thirty-something-year-old, Pisces, Excited to type his name in big letters
I’m a digital product designer, design manager, art director, artist, illustrator, letterer, and sort of developer. I work between the lines of product design, branding, and art.
My approach to product design is user-focused, begins and ends with talking to users, and always includes a prototype. When I’m working on a brand new product, I focus on defining and shipping a perfected minimum viable product. This means something delightful but likely simple. Jumping into an existing product involves a lot more talking to existing users and prioritizing sprints based on user feedback. Iterating quickly is always important.
In branding and more ✨touchy-feely💖 design, I will always champion work that makes you feel something. I like things that are strange or out of the ordinary and I refute the idea that people are boring. People like cool stuff. Branding can’t be contained in a slide deck—it’s engrained in the company. More often than not it’s a natural expression of the people who work there.
In addition to design, I make mixed media art in my studio. I sometimes use this work to inform the design I do, but largely it has a life of its own. My art practice allows me to stay grounded in real materials and ungrounded in more abstract themes. Often I think of the work as a sort of diary. 👨🎨 View my art portfolio
