My name is Steven Calhoun.

I am a multidisciplinary designer based out of Somerville, MA.

I have an educational background in product design, design research, and business strategy.  In short, I am obsessed with the intersection of design and business innovation. I love investigating how businesses lead their industries with strategic design positioning. All products and services have the same end goal: to give the user value that is worth the time/monetary cost. Design thinking can help find ways to make both the provided value more catered, and the cost more optimized. I believe design is a tool that helps us make sense of complex systems, and that is what perpetuates my love for problem-solving through design.

I began my journey as a designer in the garage of my childhood home, building toys, skate ramps, and forts as my father built Spanish missionary-style wood furniture out of cherry and walnut woods. By constantly building and prototyping, even as a child, I recognized the power of articulating thoughts through different mediums.

This process of building, refining, and repeating was ingrained in my head. I always knew I wanted to become a creator, but what I didn’t know was what I would end up doing for a profession. Design found me as I was looking for jobs that focus on expression, understanding, and creation.
Outside of professional life, I love creating watercolor and multi-medium artwork. I push pigments around until my brain feels happy about it. Painting makes me feel calm, nothing more to it!
