Associate Creative Director, User Experience Lead, AGOGO Amalgamated, Inc.
Patrick Evans began his career as an engineer and designer, alternately wearing whichever hats were needed on different projects. He cut his enterprise teeth designing interface and experience components for digital publishing products for Stanford.
HotelTonight was his first direct consumer product experience. After redesigning the majority of the HotelTonight web assets he stepped in as the primary interface designer for the imminent native iPhone app project. The iPad, Android and Android tablet apps followed, with each being an opportunity to rethink the design and experience targeted for new form factors and different platforms.
In addition to consulting on smaller projects, typically from ambitious friends with pretty amazing ideas, he's joined a business with a few of the most talented engineers he says he's ever met with the aim of creating some totally wonderful projects that will touch some screens he's always wanted to design for.
From a nominator: "Patrick Evans was, until recently, the designer at HotelTonight. Like Loren (Brichter), although to a different degree, he's an engineer by training and he is responsible for defining design patterns that other apps tend to imitate (notice how many travel apps take cues from HT, as well as others like WillCall). Patrick has since gone off and joined a stealth-mode startup."
