Hi there, my name is Russel Quadros

I’m a strategic design practitioner and creative consultant, working remotely from Jacksonville, FL, USA Seoul, South Korea.

I currently do client work through my design practice, Temper, where I specialize in leading creative strategy and establishing brand design for teams at growing companies. My career spans over twenty years in design, half of which has been spent working remotely, and primarily on branding digital experiences.

When I’m not transforming complex concepts into simple and elegant design solutions, I enjoy traveling (when possible), learning to cook old family recipes, discovering new music, and spending time with my British diplomat girlfriend fiancée wife and our Iranian mountain dog.

Find me elsewhere:


My soft skills are goal oriented to support teams and transform design within an organization:

• Defining strategic processes
• Leading healthy discourse
• Managing team relationships
• Guiding distributed teams
• Attention to detail
• Articulating value of design


My technical capabilities lie in delivering strategic tools that help make a brand distinct:

• Brand strategy & direction
• Brand identity systems
• Style guides
• UI design kits
• Print materials & templates
• Website/App design layouts

I also work as an independent design consultant/contributor, and have collaborated with agencies or in-house teams for clients such as:
