Userflow Studio is the design shop of Kevin KorpiBased in Bend, Oregon and serving clients globally.

I’m a full-stack digital product designer, writer, and strategist helping startups, entrepreneurs, and forward-thinking product teams launch new digital products and businesses. I’ve designed products and led teams at agencies in Japan and the U.S., multiple early-stage hardware and software startups, as well as Fortune 500 companies, including Google, Microsoft Research, and Amazon.

I’m not into design with a capital “D.” No one-size-fits-all frameworks or processes, no secret two-week+ long design exercises, no Mad Men-style concept presentations. Let’s work together closely, in real-time, and iterate on the design and user experience for your product, design system, or in building out your in-house design practice.

TestimonialsPeople say nice things.

"Working with Kevin is not only fun but you get to experience how world class digital products are being built today. I would recommend Kevin to any company that requires top notch Design and Product development direction. Kevin brings professionalism, quality and efficient communication to every interaction. A total pleasure to work with him."

- President & Founder, Empirical LLC

"If I were starting a company and needed a kick-ass designer, Kevin would be the first person I'd call. I was especially impressed with how creative and thorough Kevin is in his design work. If we're building a new feature, he carefully considers every possible design option and lays out the pros and cons. One of the best designers I've worked with at Google."

- Director of Product Management, Google

"Kevin embodies leadership by example, inspiring trust and creating a culture of opportunity and vision. He provides the means to execute and the just-right structure for people, across disciplines and organizations, to generate fresh ideas and unlock complex puzzles. Kevin’s his sense of business and his humanity make him a first class organizational leader, designer and mentor to many."

- User Experience Manager, Google

"Kevin really is one of the most gifted creative talents in the business. While working together at renaissance Kevin's vision in creative consulting working directly with clients and leading a large bi-lingual design team helped us win multiple global projects. Kevin's keen sense of design and ability to deliver under pressure can really go unmatched."
