My name is Chad P. Hall. I’ve spent most of my working experience in places you wouldn’t normally find a designer; tourism marketing and business management consulting. Bringing this design mindset to a non-traditional environment has made for a multitude of exciting collaborations and allowed me to learn from wearing multiple hats at the same time.
I recently earned a Master of Design at the University of Washington. There I was able to dive deeper in many areas of design. From intense seminars and studios on design theory, scholarship, research and methods, I spent a great amount of time refining hard skills while broadening my view of what design can achieve in the world.
I’m currently a Senior Designer at Cognition Studio, a strategic communications firm for life sciences. In this role I function as a hybrid visual and interaction designer. I lead and execute projects across a spectrum of mediums, from visual brand systems to interactive data visualizations.
Outside of design, my personal interests include running and physical fitness, quantified self, reading dystopian fiction and scouting for new music.
