The Say Design Team
 

John Say
CEO

 

I embarked on my adventure in design with writing my own games at 9 years old back in 1979. In 1990 I decided to start a company with no particular focus other than wanting to make cooler and more impactful visual and interactive design. Since that time I have had the privilege of developing such a wide range of products across countless platforms and mediums. I enjoy being involved in the early ideation and design of products and seeing them through to final deliverable as well as crafting the bespoke teams that assure great success. I believe that each project we are presented with is our opportunity to bring our years of experience and creativity to make something good... great!

Troy Dunniway
Vice President


I get most excitement from building innovative and market changing “blue ocean” products on time and on budget in order to create new opportunities and not just follow the market. I have 25 Years experience as a Creative Director, Designer, Art Director, UX Designer, Producer, General Manager and Director of Production on over 100 Titles at major AAA studios like Microsoft, EA & Disney. I have more than 6 years experience in Free to Play and Mobile. I'm also experienced in VR game and ride design. Before games and interactive I was in Movie & TV Executive production, special effects and scriptwriting.

Angela Nardolillo
Creative/UI/UX Director

I am a passionate artist in all things digital. I have over 10 years experience in online media marketing campaigns, documentaries, designing games, characters and animations, key art and branding, directing and editing, copy writing and mobile apps. I would say my greatest strength is understanding the audience. Being well-traveled has influenced many areas of my work. I am multi-lingual, a humanitarian, and I enjoy the execution more than the idea.

Testimonials

 
Not only did Say Design finish the game within an impossible 2-week turnaround leading up to the day prior to the new season launch, but their game became the most popular on all portals within a few weeks. After a year it is still the top most trafficked game.
 

Director of Development,
The Disney Channel

Over the past few months since Say Design updated and refreshed our website and created the new design for our logo and business cards, Roberta Shindler and I have received numerous unsolicited compliments about how smart and creative the entire package is.
 

Marty Shindler, CEO
The Shindler Perspective

This was amazing that in a prototype 88% of students enjoyed using this app and 85% would recommend this to their friends. Especially when none of the students tested actually learn online. Thanks for all of the hard work!
 

David Zeiler,
Edison Learning
