About Me


Hello. I'm Ian Murchison, born in Ottawa, Canada, where I currently reside. Design and its complex multi-facets have become the focus of my career. While I currently work as a senior user experience designer, my training comes from the Industrial Design program at Carleton University.

I have a few hobbies. I ride motorcycles, I race drones, and I fail horribly at competing against my elderly neighbours' perfectly manicured lawns.


Come hang out with fellow design enthusiasts

I host a somewhat-bimonthly meet up with designers in the city. I've been doing this for about 8 years now. Attendance has never been better. We used to have other chapters, but there's no doubt this take time to organize. If you're interested in hosting a chapter just let me know!
