MEET colin eagan THANKS FOR STOPPING BY. I’m a Master’s Candidate at VCU Brandcenter specializing in User Experience Design and Information Architecture. I’ve always loved designing complex systems. Instead of drawing pictures as a child, I made my own board games. As an Experience Designer, it is my job to take complex information and make it approachable. My background combines Big4 Consulting and Digital Agency experience. I enjoy working with clients to solve business problems and belive that a smart creativite approach can meet virtually any challenge. colin eagan // experience design 2
