Designing Content & User Experience

My name is Doren Berge. I am a digital creative director and visual UX/UI design strategist from Salem Massachusetts. As a “hands-on” creative manager I have more than 25 years experience in design leadership roles developing integrated creative strategies for branding, publishing, packaging, internet media, user experience and digital learning design.

I am a seasoned and successful startup veteran with scars to prove it. I have built and managed design organizations of all shapes and sizes. From global, multi-layer UX/FE teams to small-startup, ninja collectives. I know talent when I see it and I do everything in my power to help talent grow, thrive and bring forth great ideas.

I am a “coding designer.” Passionately devoted to user experience design and "web-craft" since the very early days of the internet (1994 - the cave paining years). Since 2003, under the moniker of “Down to Ground” I have been creating visual design solutions and interactive strategies for emerging businesses, E-commerce operations, high-traffic Internet sites, venture funded start-ups and nonprofit organizations.

I currently serve as the Creative Director/Design Technologist for Six Red Marbles – a full service design agency focused on Experience Design for Learning – where I manage digital media development, user experience design and creative media services for learners of all ages.

I am an honors graduate of the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I have previously served as an Adjunct Professor at Endicott College's School of Visual Communications, teaching a variety of courses in Typography and Web Design.

I’ve been an avid Storm Chaser since 2001 and I play my guitar like it owes me money. I live in pursuit of disruption, big weather, big Ideas, and big, funky, soulful guitar tone.
