Sam Hoang
For the past 17 years, I have led and executed design projects in agencies and at companies such as Hulu, Facebook, and Amazon. In 2018, I started 47 North Design as an independent design consultant.
Instead of strictly labeling myself a UX or UI designer, I would say I'm a design generalist—I can create whatever design artifacts are required to communicate an idea, whether it's user flows, wireframes, high-fidelity screen layouts, or interactive prototypes. I prefer being embedded within scrappy, cross-disciplinary teams than centralized design orgs. I've seen magic happen when product managers, engineers, researchers, and designers are empowered to move quickly and autonomously.
Although my entire career has been focused on digital design, my formal education is in Architecture, and I graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Georgia Tech and a Master of Architecture from MIT.
I live in Seattle, Washington and can work onsite or remotely. Please feel free to email if you want to reach me. Please also visit Wandering Away, a journal of my recent travels, and follow me on Instagram @wandering.away for more pictures.
