Welcome

My name is Denis Suhopoljac.

Currently, I’m working at Unbounce as design director - championing customer experience & UX.

For over a decade I've had the privilege of creating brand and user experiences with companies such as Nike Jordan, EA, CBC, APTN, Bell Media, Rainmaker Entertainment, Bron Studios and BC Film.

Ethos

I am a UX leader who lives and breathes the customer experience. In my past roles I have had the privilege of growing, mentoring and managing creative and ux teams.

Today, I am focused on working across an organization and developing a future state of the brand and product through strategy, research and design.

I have deep rooted design instincts and pride myself on my technical understanding. My ability to apply designing thinking enables me to solve complex problems even in ambiguous situations. More importantly, I’m passionate about creating meaningful products that people use everyday.
