Crafting simple, elegant solutions out of complex problems.


I'm Ari Zilnik, a UX designer from New York City.
I enjoy making peoples’ lives easier through interactive design, and learning about how we navigate the world.


End-to-end design

From research, to wireframes, prototypes and visual design.


Thought leadership

Beyond hands-on design work, I love to write about design processes, methods, and insights.


I’ve collaborated with Ari for over 7 years and counting. Every project becomes better with him involved. His intellect and empathy, paired with his conviction to tackle hard problems head-on, means I can always trust we’re delivering the very best.

What stands out about my experience working with Ari is his desire and ability to focus on what the true challenge or problem is and to try to solve the problem in every possible way.
