Justin Kropp

After 15 years of serving a range of clients as a digital product designer and user advocate, I am reorienting my practice to focus on leveraging the power of design to connect communities, empower people, and improve civic engagement.

My time spent as a designer in more traditional client-service engagements and startup environments has been instrumental in shaping my career. I’ve learned more than I could’ve hoped for during that time and I am indebted to those who gave me the opportunity to help.

I am now exploring opportunities that will allow me to leverage that experience and use design as a tool for the common good and to champion the power of design to affect positive change in the world around me.


My expertise centers around launching digital products and services that address real individual needs and foster long-lasting engagement.
