Long Island native Owen Scarlett is a visual designer, performing artist, choreographer, photographer and videographer growing roots in LA. He attended Point Park University for Jazz Dance/Arts Management but also explored other areas of art and design. He was a founding member of Visceral Dance Chicago, and performed with the company for four seasons.
Owen has created works for several companies such as DanceWorks Chicago, Dance in the Parks and Visceral Dance Chicago. He has a great compassion for dance, and enjoys giving back to others in the dance community. In May of 2018, he traveled to Guatemala with Juntos Collective to bring dance and movement to underserved schools, hospitals and orphanages.
In 2015, he founded Owen Scarlett Productions, a design/photo production company. This company has allowed numerous dancers to market themselves cost effectively. Since then he’s been able to create digital work for non-profits such as Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Visceral Dance Chicago, Rivernorth Dance Chicago and The American Cancer Society.
The UX Design world has allowed Owen to explore other areas of creativity. As a dancer, creativity and structure are instilled in him. Being well disciplined is key for dance and that translates completely to design. He treats UI Design as a structured art-form. The goal of all of his work is to get the user from point "A" to point "B" as quickly as possible, while inspiring them with his designs along the way.
