“I’m excited to grow HCD and a team of talented designers at OpenArc,” said Lotter. “In addition to our expertise designing and developing custom software for web and mobile, OpenArc has done strong client work using Virtual Reality (VR). Both VR and AR provide new ways to experience information and pose interesting challenges that design thinking can help with.”
