Check out the incredible work of James Socci, the mastermind behind our rebranding campaign:

I am a user researcher and facilitator for Amplified by Design. I collaborate with teams to help them better understand their customers’ needs and implement data-insights to create and improve services, products, and systems.

Additionally, I facilitate workshops and rituals, providing a structure to meaningfully experience some of the big stuff of life and to connect and play with what it means to be a human. I have been facilitating group work for over 14 years and believe in the power of intentional space for discovery, expression, connection, and creativity. I’ve lived many lives. Previously I was a bartender working under one of the most respected authors and bartenders in the spirits world, Jeffery Morgenthaler, and a finalist in one of the most prestigious cocktail competitions in the U.S., Bombay Sapphire’s Most Imaginative Bartender Competition. Before that, I worked at Esalen Institute as the executive assistant to the CEO and helped found the Integral Leadership Program.
