Howdy, I’m Patrick Chew, a product designer working for Xbox in Seattle, Washington. I’ve designed for companies both big and small, from verynice, a once-tiny social good design firm in LA, to Nike in Oregon, to IBM in Austin.


By day, I design software products for the rapidly-changing cybersecurity industry. By night, I run my passion project: the IBM Make Lab, an internal maker space on IBM’s Austin campus open for any IBMer to use.

As one of the first 100 designers hired by IBM, I’m actively involved in shaping the culture of our very young design practice by mentoring and educating new designers.

I’ve been a speaker at SXSW, The O’Reilly Design Conference, AIGA Austin, and The Mattel Refuel Speaker Series. I also hold an award from HOW Design Magazine, a patent, and a mean table tennis forehand.

I appreciate you taking the time to look through my site, which has just a slice of my work. If you’d like to see more, or talk through something in more detail, I’d really love to take you through my process over the phone or in person.
