Ross Moody

Hi, I'm Ross. A product designer, full-stack engineer, and systems thinker that loves making things for the web.

I started my career1 running a screenprinting stationery company where I printed all kinds of fun products out of a 1-bedroom apartment in NYC2. I worked as a hand-lettering artist, illustrator, and print designer for a while before trading paper for pixels and moving to San Francisco3 to become a product designer4.

It wasn't long before I discovered the magic of programming and started learning JavaScript5 while helping launch a browser at Brave that was powered by cryptocurrency. From there I began focusing on design systems and was fortunate enough to lead the Garden design system team at Zendesk in launching their documentation website.

These days I'm a Principal Design Technologist at Splunk. I like French Bulldogs6, cryptocurrency7, and my Aprilia RS 660. If you let me too close to your closet I’ll organize it8.

Online Stationery Business

Fifty Five Hi's

55 Hi's was a company I owned and operated for several years that closed up shop in 2014. The claim to fame was making a card that turned into a shot glass. Though the business is now defunct, I leave the website up because it gives a good glimpse into how effective I am at writing bad jokes.
