Thought Merchants is a 1-man shop that specializes in creating usable experiences for human beings.
I’m Steve Berry. I founded Thought Merchants in Philadelphia in 2008, moved it to NYC in 2011, and currently work out of Venice Beach California and help companies of all sizes manage complexity through user experience best practices.
A well executed design identifies logical groups of information and functionality where people expect it. I pride myself on diagnosing design complexity through visual and interactive solutions.
Simple is the language of everyone, want to create something simple? Get in touch.
