Staff highlights

Scotty Saunders

Engagement Manager

“As an Engagement Manager, I have in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the project, and I constantly communicate project progress, opportunities, and potential barriers to the client and internal team. If pivots in a project approach are needed, I am able to see those changes coming around the bend and proactively suggest adjustments or alternative approaches.”

Lys Maitland

Senior Experience Researcher

“I perform a variety of research depending on the problem we are solving. For example, I use generative research to help define a problem and evaluative research to help assess an existing design. As a researcher, my goal is to discover the pain points, needs, motivations, and behaviors of users. This brings the user into the design process, which is the whole point of doing research.”

Walter Breakell

Senior Creative Technologist

“As a Senior Creative Technologist, I help create and build web experiences for our clients. I’m focused on translating the ideas of our user experience and design teams into living, breathing applications. My role requires a huge amount of collaboration working alongside designers, researchers, project managers, and clients to deliver great products for our users. “

Erica Fransen

Account Director

“As an Account Director at Effective, I serve as a trusted adviser for our clients and lead the exploration of new ideas, discovering solutions to critical problems, illuminating the client’s organizational blind spots, and navigating the road ahead. My focus is on cultivating our client relationships and ensuring that we are providing strategic value as a partner.”

Melissa Sepe

Experience Design Principal

“As an Experience Design Principal, I work with our clients to understand their business goals and customers’ needs, and I lead multidisciplinary teams to create experiences that solve for those goals and needs. I also partner closely with our Engagement Managers to ensure that we are delivering positive client experiences and keeping our projects healthy and on track.”

Shane McAllister

Senior Experience Designer

“As a Senior Experience Designer, my role is deeply rooted in understanding who I am designing for — their emotional states, expectations, and needs. I work closely with teams to solve complex design problems; define powerful, versatile brand expressions; exceed business goals; and streamline the development process. There’s a lot of collaboration: sketching, mapping journeys, exploring and systematizing the visual language. Everything leads up to designing the best possible experience.”
