About

Ashton Shechter Design

Hello. I’m Ashton Shechter. I solve problems through designing websites, products and design systems.

 
 
 

In real life.

I am a designer based out of Kansas City, MO focused on digital products, innovation, systematic design and leading teams toward solutions

Being one who always thinks in systems, I found a space in the product world creating intricate and intentional UI/UX patterns for users to follow as well as striving to consult teams on best practices, assist in tool research and implementation, and create overarching design systems. I have knowledge in designing within an agile development framework, responsive web pages, and global applications. 

Currently, I am helping to craft a global user experience solution, amplifying collaboration across teams and providing frameworks to evolve design needs across various regions.
