After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications, Mr. Sobol moved to Los Angeles to pursue his design career.  After working for an advertising agency, he followed his entrepreneurial spirit and started an action sports company.  After a couple of years, he wanted to expand his toolset and understand why and how people interact with products, so he moved up to San Francisco to hone his design thinking methodology and obtain a master’s degree in Web Design & New Media from the Academy of Art University. Eight years ago, Mr. Sobol decided to move back to Cleveland to help various-sized companies at different stages within multiple industries identify innovative approaches to streamline their design processes to align business and user goals.  His philosophy is that simplicity is the key to functional design.  Introducing fresh perspectives and new techniques allows companies to evolve and grow.  Mr. Sobol’s goal is to remain on the cutting-edge of technology trends while keeping the user top of mind.
