Another Minneapolis Designer.

I’m Paul Novak (b. 1989) and I'm a graphic & interactive designer. The work I do is on a wide array of design type things, from design systems for the medical device world to the logo & website for the small business down the street.

Based in Minneapolis, MN where I spend my days working with the fine folks of Halftone Digital. Doing things like building wireframes and userflows for a mobile app, all the way to digging into the details of a website menu animation.

Away from my day job I like to spend my time creating the things I want to see in the world and helping folks who are doing good things out there. Most recently I've been enjoying building the web with Webflow and making fun, self-initiated websites that are mostly for myself to help learn me new things. I'm interested in collaborating with people with a fun idea and/or an excellent cause. Please don't hesitate to reach out.
