Leading Silicon Valley UX Director Soudy Khan has recently launched a new user-experience consultancy, “Neuron”, in Seattle. Focused on delivering mission-critical user experiences, the company also involves four other Senior UX designers.

Neuron will cater to Seattle, Portland, and Silicon Valley.

“We are excited to announce the launch of our new UX consultancy, committed to delivering mission-critical user-experience designs for the mobile-web, military, medical, and automotive sectors. There’s a serious shortage of user-experience designers qualified for mission-critical work and we have come up with Neuron as the much-needed answer to that.”, stated Khan while announcing the launch of his new startup.

Backed by decade-long experience in UX leadership, Khan has spearheaded and established user-experience teams at multiple public, and VC-backed companies. His long list of past clientele includes the likes of LinkedIn, General Motors, Bayer, Athena Health, Bosch, and Intuit.

Khan has also been a teacher of the Immersive UX Program for General Assembly and recently held the position of Interim UX Director at one of Boston’s fastest rising software companies, Toast.

Khan came up with the idea of launching a new UX consultancy while training future UX designers in Boston at General Assembly. His students landed jobs at prestigious companies such as IBM, SolidWorks, Wayfair, and DISH Network, and Khan was inspired by their passion for their new careers.

While in Boston, Khan met four talented architectural designers and he knew he had found his business partners for the design-focused venture he was planning for.

“Between the four of them they hold seven degrees in Architecture, including three Masters. They were all looking for a new challenge, and history has taught me that architects make for some of the best UX designers.”

All four of them (Mark Munroe, Matt Stoner, Ryan Matthew, and Chris Marciano) have been trained and mentored in-house by the veteran UX Director – to assess, analyze and deliver outstanding user experiences.

“They are more than designers. They are critical thinkers, adept in building componentized systems. That’s what it takes to deliver mission-critical experiences.”

Neuron delivers every facet of user experience, ranging from primary research and information architecture to user interaction and visual design. Moreover, apart from their traditional engagement models, Neuron offers a service they call "UX Now" where the team can be deployed on-site or off-site according to customer needs to handle any UX work.

“There are no interns or junior designers here. The five partners of Neuron are the five people who will deliver your work.” Khan added in with a smile.
