I'm Sarah Harrison, a UX designer, mentor, and lean process coach in San Francisco. I'm passionate about empowering creative team members, creating a sustainable work culture, and working together to solve problems that matter.

I mentor teams and individuals to grow creative skills and confidence in their abilities as a user-centered product designer.

I work with designers, product managers, founders, and even a few VCs who want to learn UX design to enhance their business, navigate a career change, or grow as leaders in their fields. Learn more →

Sarah is a rare individual in the world of user experience. She combines an excellent visual design sense with broad understanding of modern interaction patterns. This is balanced by a pragmatic approach to working with engineering and business constraints to deliver the best possible outcome in real world scenarios. She consistently provides clear direction to team members and is excellent at providing background ‘current state’ and competitive research to support her decisions. A true pleasure to work with.
