Hello! I’m Eric Powell, a Lead Product Designer working remotely out of Portland, OR.

About
About

I am a product designer with over 15 years of experience working with companies and brands such as Nike, Walmart, Coors, Columbia Sportswear, eBay, Sony, Nissan, Yakima, and The Dyrt. I have experience with promotional, B2C, B2B, advertising, e-commerce, enterprise projects, apps, and tools.

I have also led, designed, and implemented multiple design systems, including Nike’s “SALT” enterprise design library (used by 29 apps and 22 teams), Columbia’s design library (supporting Columbia, Sorel, Mountain Hardwear, and Prana), and “S’ mores” for The Dyrt camping app, which helped them earn the #1 Camping App of 2021.

I am passionate about bringing innovation and creativity to my work through the lens of the customer/user.
