I'm Danny McClain, a multi-disciplinary designer currently focusing on design systems.
I like to design methodically and put an emphasis on tidiness.
Modernizing the way SmileDirectClub designs and develops user interfaces.
I led the design of SmileDirectClub's design system and website replatform—a massive, cross-organization effort to increase efficiency, bring harmony to a varied web presence, and delight customers while improving the designer and developer experience.
Outside of my product design work, I like to design icons and icon sets.
My most recent icon set is the one for this very website—here they are all together, plus one or two extras.
I like to explore the technologies that bring design to life on the web.
Here are a few small projects I've built to satisfy my own curiosity and speed up my workflow.Fitter A tiny Figma plugin that resizes an item to fit its parent's width, height, or both. Ratio A quick, dead-simple proportion calculator made with Svelte. Grid Finder A tool to help you calculate perfect grids with whole values. (Plugin version in development.)
