Hello, I'm Kiefer Ipsen

I'm a product designer working in California. I have been fortunate to help great companies build awesome products as a career. You can find my portfolio here, practice on dribbble and daily UI projects.

My Skillset

Web Application Design & Development

I have worked with various companies to help create simple, useful design solutions. My career began at a startup where wearing many hats isn't uncommon and busting your ass to get something done was daily. I keep that mentality with every company and every project I work on. I like working with small teams that keep the process lean and swift.

When I graduated I was desperate for projects so I took everything I could get whether it was designing or coding. This turned into me keeping that tradition going to today. There's something about coding that you can never walk away from. This has helped me understand what the web is capable of and the direction we can all take it in.

My Life

About Me

When I'm not staring at a computer screen I'm out with my family either at Disneyland or building wood projects. I like playing pick up basketball, making my house a smart home and adding tattoos to my collection.

This year, I'm planning on writing more about my craft and helping others grow from my mistakes. I want to take my side projects more seriously. Lastly, teach my son how to be the best person possible.

Don't mind the photo, just taking a bite out of my son.
