Design Principal, Immersive AI & AI Services / IBM
Rob Harrigan is a visual creative, passionate about brand & technology. Over the past five years at IBM, they’ve been creating experiences, experimenting, and establishing best practices within the nascent field of design with AI and now lead design for immersive spatial experiences powered by AI. Their wanderlust background of experimental film making, visual design, storytelling, and branding, has created a unique skill set that has allowed them to discover their definition of great design. Before joining IBM, Rob was an Associate Creative Director at Ogilvy & Mather, a Brand Art Director at the financial start-up Liquidnet and a freelancer about town. Outside of the office, Rob is never far from design & technology — whether creating work with their partner Stephanie in their studio, running their fashion start-up Kitschy Witch Designs™, or tinkering with Arduino, vintage electronics, and woodworking.
