"Mark is one of the unique thinkers in this world. Able to see past the obvious answers, Mark delivers creative and intuitive solutions that are both fresh and yet instantly familiar. One of the most striking things about working with Mark is how often his work and his ideas are emulated by those around him. His spark and passion energizes those around him and his contributions become a positive force on any team he works with."

Brian Lamka

Director of Product Management
"Working with Mark was great. He fundamentally believes in solving for outcomes vs outputs, and this guides every step of his design process. He is logical, organized, and very thorough in his work. He has an ownership mentality, which I've found to be surprisingly rare in my career. And, perhaps most important, his attitude and sense of humor made the long hours we spent together on this project a lot of fun. Mark epitomizes my ideal design leader."

Jeanne Bard

Sr. Manager, UX Research
"Mark Iris is an excellent product designer with an unmatched ability to ideate and innovate at a prolific pace. I’m especially impressed with his dedication to learning and improving. Already a highly skilled designer and product visionary, he regularly seeks feedback to help improve his existing skills, and works to build new skills by attending seminars and devouring industry books. Plus, he adds a playful element to every meeting and workshop with his zany sense of humor. As both a product designer and a collaborator, Mark has my highest recommendation."

"Mark is one of the sharpest minds in any room he's present. I have seen him provide insights into usability issues that is on point and makes for significant improvements. He's very detail oriented and communicates his thought process very well. When presenting designed solutions, he has alternative designs and explorations as examples for discussion - a sign of a good designer with a holistic approach to his work. He is a delight to work with and a great addition to our team."

Sergey Ivashov

What makes him truly stand out, is that he has managed to find the right balance between understanding customer needs, pushing the boundaries with design to delight the customer, and is able to convince engineering that the huge obstacle they see is just a minor roadblock that can be overcome with creativity."

Older work

The portfolio you're viewing is brand new, and under construction. While I'm renovating, feel free to view my old portfolio. It's out of date, but you'll find gold, if you've got the heart of an explorer.

Let's go vintage
You did it

Congratulations

You've made it to the end. You deserve a snack.
