I’m Reese Cooper, a designer who loves to innovate. 👋

As a product designer working at the apex of new tech, I’m fascinated by how design decisions influence user interactions with products. When approaching a new project, my aim is to make product integration into consumer experiences as seamless as possible.

Working with me means working with someone dedicated to finding the most creative answers to design problems. I’m never content going with an established way of doing things when it’s possible to innovate.

Work experience

Product designer

Fritz Design Co. / Feb 2017 - Aug 2019

My work at Fritz Design Co. mostly centered around thinking about how to remove the block to communication online. While most of us are used to technology mediating communications, I wanted to make online text and video communication feel as natural and comfortable as in-person interactions.

Senior product designer

The Oakland Makery / Aug 2019 - Present

My role at The Oakland Makery gave me my first professional insights into the world of virtual and augmented reality. While I’d used VR as a consumer, realizing the new modes of thinking designers were entering to create modern VR and AR thinking revolutionized the way I think about the technology.
