Randy J. Hunt

I’m Creative Director at Etsy, where I lead the team of designers building web products and creating off-line experiences. In 2014, we were honored with the National Design Award.

I believe designers must be able to build what they design. I wrote Product Design for the Web, which you just might enjoy.
