Joseph Calarco

UX Designer

I am a UX Design generalist with a passion for emerging technologies, driven by a desire to have an impact on their foundational design principles. I wish to be a part of making them as intuitive, accessible, and empowering as possible so that nobody, particularly those who feel alienated or intimidated, is left behind.

Haiba Labs

Haiba Labs is a stealth startup creating a platform for dynamic, non-linear, immersive storytelling. It is run by developer alumni from Google Spotlight Stories who helped build "Pearl," the first VR film to be nominated for an Oscar. I am helping create methods for more intuitive digital lighting design in VR settings.

ABOUT ME

One collaborative design process into another...

I had been a theater artist and educator for years. These experiences gave me invaluable tools to enrich my processes in the world of UX and Product Design. Before I even knew what UX Design was, I had been preparing for it for most of my life.
