Carl on New Years 2014/2015 wearing a paper crown.


Hello, my name is Carl Collins. I’m currently Director of UX at Emissary, a New York startup that delivers the inside truth to sales executives so they can unlock the potential of every deal.

Before that, I was at ADP working on user interfaces for the employee experience, and working to solve business problems related to small business tax filings.

During my 10 years in User Experience I’ve had the chance to work with a diverse range of clients including: NBC/Universal, Sirius XM, Hearst, A&E, and Verizon.


I’m an Information architect and product designer. I observe users, organize research, draw diagrams, construct strategy, design products, write messaging, and work with managers and development in the service of solving problems.


I’m cofounder of the 3D printed jewelry brand, GothamSmith.

I make books at the Whale & Crown (site coming soon).

I’m also currently designing a series of games that can be played with a deck of standard playing cards.

Thanks for stopping by.
