Staff highlights

Alex Levin

Senior Experience Researcher

“As a Senior Experience Researcher, I lead and oversee research at the project level. This entails helping define appropriate methodologies and approaches for meeting clients’ end goals and objectives. Additionally, I execute the research and analyze the research data. I partner with our design team to understand how research is going to help inform design from a strategic point of view.”

Scotty Saunders

Senior Engagement Manager

“As a Senior 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.”

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.”

Jenna Brucoli

Senior Experience Designer

“As a Senior Experience Designer, my goal is to create work that balances a client’s business goals with an end user’s needs. I work collaboratively with my clients, acting almost like an extension of their team, to understand their business and their audience on a deeper, more emotional level. And in that environment of collaboration and trust, I facilitate regular working sessions.”

Shane McAllister

Lead Experience Designer

“As a Lead 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.”
