Hi, I’m Steven Soshea.

I relish the opportunity to research and analyze user needs and interests, along with analytics, business models, and industry trends. Then, turning insights into creativity, I work energetically and harmoniously with team members, clients, and vendors to create media that is strategic, innovative, and beautifully executed.
I am a low maintenance, high performance manager/designer who focuses on problem-solving, rather than ego gratification. I view the design process as a collaborative effort and strive to create design solutions which integrate the interests of all relevant stake holders. And as all living systems must adapt to survive, I fundamentally believe in energetic curiosity and life-long learning, and the importance of both design craft and theory.
I passionately believe in the possibilities of the human spirit, managing my team in a progressive and constructive manner. I give meaningful and professional guidance, finding deep satisfaction in the successes of my team. I am committed to personal growth and would encourage my team to take on all reasonable creative and technical challenges.
“As a designer/UX lead, he had a bold vision and owned it – always backing his decisions with solid design philosophies and reasoning. Steven had the respect of everyone on the team and brought a new and fresh perspective to the product that brought light to paths unknown to us.”

David Chen, Lead Quality Engineer, Ingenio, LLC

“In almost 20 years experience, I’ve never worked with a more informed, sophisticated and intellegent brand “thinker” than Steven Soshea. Steven understands branding and brand design at a level far beyond that of his peers.”

Misty Wiles Leininger, Strategic Marketing Senior Management
