Hi, I'm Matt Opsahl. 
I am a Senior Product Designer of web application products , living in beautiful Seattle, Washington.
A little about me.
I have 10 years of experience as a designer at small start-ups, and large enterprise companies building new products and features from the ground-up.
My primary skills include visual design, user-centered decisions, and managing design systems. I'm good at taking project from zero to launch, as well as working with and defining areas that are ambiguous. My Co-workers have described me as a friendly, positive thinking team member.

I love understanding user pain-points using data from research or testing, then using design to help them succeed in using a product or workflow by making information and actions more clear.

I'm interested in companies whose products benefit people's lives in industries that include education, healthcare, security, finance, and other areas. 

In my next role, I want to continue working in-house on a product team for a web or mobile application, where I can grow my skills in facilitating focus groups, and leveraging data.
Select Projects.
Case studies available upon request.
