CHICAGO – Oct. 25, 2018 – As client needs continue to grow and become more sophisticated, digital agency One North has added four new director-level members to its experience design team. This multidisciplinary team of specialists helps clients weave design – including brand, creative, communications, interaction and user experience – into their overall business strategy and, ultimately, differentiate their brands in a crowded marketplace.

“Our clients are looking to us to help position them now and for the future,” said Ryan Schulz, managing director of brand and experience design at One North. “With the addition of this carefully curated team of specialists, we are deepening our ability to proactively anticipate what our clients need and continuously drive their success.”

The experience design team’s 360-degree approach to engagements guides clients through strategic problem-solving and solutions, encourages collaboration and promotes growth. One North’s new team includes director-level hires Britta Hernalsteen, creative director; Sheryl Kravitz, director, brand and communications; Joseph Peart, creative director; and David Roth, director of UX strategy. They are joined by key talent, including Zach Schloss, user experience strategy lead, and Sarah Chung, senior designer.

At previous agencies, these strategic thinkers have done work for brands such as IBM, Google, Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo Inc., Intel Corp., eBay Inc., Adobe Systems, The Kraft Heinz Co., PayPal, Harley-Davidson, Hyatt, Citibank, Instagram, Emerson, Maxar Technologies, Blackbaud, Harris Corp., Autocar and Marriott.
