Paul Van Tuyl

Paul is one of the Design Team Leads at Tallwave in Scottsdale, Arizona. He helps guide Tallwave’s efforts to implement design thinking when creating business solutions and opportunities – through well-crafted experiences, products, and services – for their clients. Prior to Tallwave, Paul worked at 29th Drive as a Product Designer and Front End Developer, and has over 12 years of experience in product design, website design and development, animation, video production, and just about everything creative that can fit in between these different roles.


Their Talk...

Design consistency, craft, efficiency, and cat memes 

Designing products and websites that meet business goals and user needs can often be a challenging and stressful endeavor. Time is short, budgets are limited, and consensus can be hard to reach. For most designers, craft is also extremely important – and it can be frustrating to have a project marked as “complete” when you feel like you could have put more love and time into it.  

We deal with this scenario every day at Tallwave, and we’ve learned to try and leverage a combination of tools and process to help us both meet business needs and fulfill our inner designer obsessiveness. Come hang out and I’ll talk about what we use to keep us from going bonkers: 

  • Tools like Sketch, Abstract, Invision, and Zeplin  
  • Processes like design collaboration, version control, sprint planning 
  • Artifacts like UI kits and cat memes
