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.

Jeff Duke

Creative Technologist

“As a Creative Technologist, it’s my job to work closely with our design team to bring designs to life, in code, for our clients. This includes working with designers in the early stages to determine feasibility and level of effort on a design before it gets built, and then subsequently working with our quality assurance team to verify that what I created is exactly what the design called for.”

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.”

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

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.”
