Meet your leader: Noel Franus
I help good designers and design thinkers grow into leaders.
I'm Noel, head of Chalet Workshop, Franus Experience Design and the P.ink social-impact network.
For 20 years I’ve honed the fundamentals and explored the edges of experience design, as a leader within globally lauded creative agencies and as a details-obsessed UX practitioner. I know what it takes to challenge conventions, lead creative teams, and design for impact.
In prior lives, I've been VP/Experience Design Director at Crispin Porter + Bogusky (Domino's, Turkish Airlines, American Express, Aspen Dental, Best Buy, Microsoft); former chair of the IXDA Student Design Challenge in San Francisco and Helsinki; and founder of Carbon IQ, San Francisco's first user experience agency.
My work has won some nice awards, and been featured in the New York Times, CNN, MTV, BBC, ABC 20/20, PBS, Upworthy, Buzzfeed, the Associated Press and Oprah.
Why Chalet Workshop?
I've lectured extensively within the US and abroad, yet Chalet Workshop gives me the opportunity to design the ideal-state learning experiences I've always wanted to lead, in a location where I've always wanted to lead it. Right here in Boulder. Join me.
