I'm Josh Morse, an experienced product design leader.
Welcome to my site!
I’m a user experience professional based in the Denver-Boulder metro area of Colorado. I have over 15 years of digital experience spanning product design, research, team management, analytics, and front-end development. I’ve led the design for software products which have been recognized as best-in-class by top analysts Forrester and Gartner and built out product design teams and processes at a variety of growing companies.
I enjoy writing, and have published articles on the professional UX publication UX Collective. I am also active with a variety of local UX meetups, including leading volunteer teams for the past few years in helping Colorado nonprofits improve the user experience of their offerings. While I recently focused on team management and design strategy, I also actively design in Figma, conduct user research, and update design systems. I especially enjoy mentoring aspiring designers and creating a positive space for them to craft great products that users love.
Organized a "Giving Back" volunteer project through the Boulder UX Research Meetup. Mentored a team with 3 junior UX professionals, and delivered a full usability report and presentation to Colorado Uplift, a local education nonprofit.
