Steven Hanley is the newest edition to Handsome’s Product Design team. He sees successful design as the marriage between logic and emotion. His personal goal is to produce digital products that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also delightfully functional.
As far as the future of design, Steven is most interested in the practical applications of artificial intelligence and how it can improve people’s lives on a day-to-day basis.
Fun fact: My favorite music to listen to while I’m working is classic 60s Soul. Sam Cooke, Percy Sledge, Etta James, Otis Redding, Jimmy Hughes – you name it. I find the simplicity, passion, and realism of the storytelling inspiring.
After graduating from the University of Texas, he worked as a designer at several Austin start-ups before freelancing full time. During his freelance experience, Steven worked on a wide range of projects including a virtual coaching app and an ecommerce platform tailored to dog owners.
He is currently working on a mobile solution for TaxAct.
