I’m Oscar Myre IV, a digital designer working remotely from Seattle, Washington. I’ve lead as an individual contributor, as a consultant, and as manager — currently as UX/UI Designer at World Vision US.
Through a career of designing and managing, I’ve found that I’m at my best when I’m helping others succeed — today I do that through building design systems and mentoring. As a designer, I’m passionate about solving tough customer problems by combining thoughtful research, clever technology and beautiful design.
Before designing for a living, I was a D3 track athlete. I ran the 400M, 800M & anchored the 4×400. At the Penn Relays I ran I 4×800 and DMR (Distance Medley Relay). Sports have always been an integral part of my life. I’ve coached many season of soccer and basketball.
My mind is never too far from nature. I love the mountains and the seas. I appreciate the importance of a healthy work/life balance. So when I’m not online, you’ll find me outside with my wife… chasing my three kids, taking a hike, playing in the water, running or maybe indoors playing soccer or basketball.
Enough from me,
see what others are saying…
Oscar’s Redesigned website helped land the opportunity for Edgar to be a contributor for Verse of the Day on YouVersion — the most popular Bible App in the world. YouVersion estimates that nearly 1 million people have watched each of Edgar’s recent messages, supporting critical World Vision U.S. priorities of increasing trust and Christian identity with key audiences.
Website also helped Public Relations team pitch and land national Fox News opportunities for Edgar, resulting in more than 45 million impressions and helping to bring the attention of donors to World Vision’s response to the Ukraine crisis and the tornados that struck the midwest.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with many UX professionals, and I can confidently say Oscar is in the top quartile of high performers.
I worked with Oscar on several projects while consulting through Toptal at WorldVision. Not only did Oscar prove to be extraordinary, he also helped me navigate the company’s internal processes to ensure projects were on-time, on-budget, and delivered with operational excellence.
I learned a lot from Oscar. He’s always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needs it. Watching him work in a highly competitive landscape while delivering bleeding-edge innovation was an inspiration! His ability to overcome challenges with a smile made him stand out as a cut above the rest!
Any company would be lucky to have Oscar leading UX on their payroll.
Oscar was instrumental in designing and launching a new website for two strategic market segments worth over $150M in annual revenue. His passion for delivering a great UX is evident in every conversation, to the extent that he helped us see the need to expand our thinking beyond what we had originally intended in order to really meet the needs of our audiences.
What was originally going to be a text heavy site that would be difficult to sift for information turned into a much more user friendly site utilizing clever data illustrations that positioned our organization as thought leaders in a crowded and undifferentiated marketplace. I would happily work with Oscar again on any project and highly recommend.
