Ben Yee

Alumni, Class of 2009

Through smart design and emerging technology, I’m interested in creating clever experiences with positive impact on our world.

I grew up in the Midwest, graduated from Tufts University with a degree in American Studies and Studio Art, and then found myself here in New York City. Over the next five years, I balanced full-time work with grad-school at NYU and learned a lot about innovation, global leadership, and administration.

My career as a UX professional sprinted forward when I completed my master’s degree at ITP and became the interaction designer for a digital shop called STEADY. There, the team executed fun and unique projects for clients including Nike, Vogue, and American Express. Now at Gilt Groupe, I’m diving deep into the world of specialty e-commerce.
