This is my personal site. I'm Charlie Gower a design director in New York. I founded a small design studio called Sunday Hunches in 2015 which I run part time. It's very early days. We made an iOS app and we're currently working on some textile designs. Most of my time is taken up by being a co founder and creative director of Scarlet, a technology start up running out of the Samsung Accelerator in NYC.
On this website you'll find a collection of things and ideas I’m pondering on and exploring.
By and large these projects are not for anyone in particular and they bring me no direct financial gain, usually the opposite. They are merely ideas in the service of me that take the form of projects both large and small, sensible and silly.
I've worked as a Service Designer, Creative Director and a Design Director at agencies and start ups in New York (and other cities around the world). Leading multidisciplinary teams designing (mostly) digital products, services and strategies from conception to market. This was for clients such as; ESPN, Harvard Medical School, Qualcomm, Citibank, Paypal and many more.
These are a set of little explorations that have no direct consequence. By and large they are not for anyone in particular and they bring me no direct financial gain. Simply things, ideas in the service of me. Explorations for the sake of my curiosity. Lots of them aren't going to finish any time soon and non of them really have any commercial application. They seem to naturally fall into either projects (that begin and end) or collections of (stuff) over time.
