Demetre Arges

I am a creative design leader focused on bridging business goals and human needs. 

With 20 years of hands-on experience: I help teams ship inspired ideas that strategically blend product, storytelling, and innovation.


Experiences shape society and culture—how we relate to one another and ourselves
Design has the ability to fundamentally change how humans function. As we design experiences, we need to be radically human-centric. We have a responsibility to consider the impact of our decisions on those humans. How do we shift from simply designing more, to designing more meaningfully?

The best product experiences value the power of emotion
Form and function alone is not enough, a great product experience has to have feeling. Focus on how the experiences we create makes people feel. Emotions are the key driver of customer experience because they are fundamental to who we are and the choices we make.

The future belongs to the curious
The design process inherently helps us imagine, then create potential futures. As designers, we have an opportunity to shape the future. Leading with understanding, empathy, and intention we continue to imagine and anticipate new possibilities and futures.
