I’m Roger Wong, currently Head of Design at Convex, and Founder and Creative Director of Wong.Digital. Previously at TrueCar, Rosetta, Razorfish, Organic, Pixar, and Apple.

About Me

With over 20 years of experience, I have a strong passion for Design—note the uppercase D. I believe that everything in this world should function well and be beautiful while doing so. Having cut my teeth as a print designer in school and the mid-1990s, I learned digital design in San Francisco during the first dot-com boom of the late ’90s. In the 2000s, I learned how to lead, from small teams to huge; I went from designing objects to designing organizations. Now combining my understanding of form, technology, and humans, I’m focused on making great brand and product experiences.

I am based in San Diego, California.
