Randy Gregory II

Randy Gregory

Randy Gregory II is a designer who focuses on the intersections between experience, brand, and the systems that govern them all. Currently working in Austin, TX as a part of IBM, Randy primarily devotes his time to shaping the culture of a 100-year-old icon, developing industry-focused applications as a Design Lead within Watson, and developing content as the Content Director of IBM Radio. This is all while running Design Thinking workshops, interviewing the next generation of design talent, developing mentorship programs, contributing to the Design Thinking and UX practices, and posting a 50/50 mixture of jokes and cat gifs to Slack.

Randy began in Phoenix working as a user experience designer for U-Haul and taking numerous odd jobs. After contributing to the beginnings of PHXDW, Randy ended up in New York City as a part of the School Of Visual Arts’ Masters In Branding program. There, he worked on projects for Major League Soccer, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Transportation Security Administration. It was during this time that he achieved global recognition for his “100 Ways to Improve the New York Subway System” project, which took a look at creative ideation around the subway. He also consumed a lot of pizza.

When not walking the halls of IBM, Randy plays far too much Dungeons & Dragons (but really, there’s no such thing), brews beer, makes sausage, attempts to make music, fails at trivia, and posts photos of his dog on Instagram on a consistent basis.

Life is good.
