Welcome to the blog of ThinkXD
My name is Grant Carmichael, an Information Architect and User Experience Designer based in Grand Rapids, MI. In 2014, I joined the great team of thinkers at The Understanding Group as an Information Architect.
From 2008-2014, I started ThinkXD, a UX practice that specializes in the research and design of interface design frameworks for products and web-based applications and had the good fortune to work with many wonderful clients and collaborators during that time.
Previously, I was an Interaction Designer at Knoware, a studio dedicated to web applications and embedded display products with a knack for invention and previously as a Project Leader/Interactive Designer with Square One Design, a nationally recognized graphic design studio gifted at finding the right personality for an experience. I have a degree in Industrial Design from Carnegie Mellon University, a foundation that I still draw upon today to keep the end user at the heart of any project.
