I'm Anthony Cangelosi and I currently work as a Senior Interaction Designer at Shapeways. I focus on user acquisition, shopper discovery, user retention and direct brand identity creative. I was previously at Bookish where I tried to help readers find their next book and Giant Realm where I tried to make online advertising suck less for the 18 to 34 year old gamer set.
I believe in designing and optimizing experiences using a healthy dose of empathy and simplicity. Bells and whistles are great, but not at the cost of a poor or complicated user experience. I also think you should be able to build what you design as it is key to understanding what makes an experience work well. Plus, it's just fun.
A musician in my former life, I still enjoy playing, writing, and recording. I'm also a martial arts practitioner having trained in Shaolin kung fu, Muay Thai, and currently Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my wife who is a trained assassin for the Illuminati.
Go ahead, have a laugh
I've decided to publicly shame myself with links to old portfolios. It's interesting to see how far you've come and also very humbling to see how terrible things you did in the past were. I'm sure I'll feel the same about this site.
