Design Citizen is powered by the trusted network of Dave Miller.

I founded Design Citizen with the goal of helping people and organizations grow through shared purpose, passion and profession. It’s the best way I know how to personally contribute to the businesses and products that move us all forward.

As a community organizer and creative professional with an expertise in recruiting & talent management, I act as an ambassador and advocate for the people, programs, and clients I serve. As a career coach, I help individuals visualize their potential and lend insights and actionable steps on how to reach it. As a recruiter and talent manager, I help companies evangelize their brand, craft and carry out inclusive growth strategies, and hire amazing people.

Whether you’re looking for your next career opportunity or looking to hire design professionals, this virtual nation is for people who apply bold, human-centered thinking to create innovative, inclusive, and sustainable business solutions through design. I hope you’ll join us.

It was great working with you to strategize and scale recruiting and community efforts across our studio.

The work you’ve done to help us hire full-time and contract employees while also evolving the long term candidate experience plan was transformational.

Your efforts have had an amazing impact on our design community at large!

Your advocacy for our brand as leaders in the Seattle design community has gotten more of our people involved, helping us represent the diversity that we want to attract.

I really appreciate your push to improve diversity with-in hiring, and your awareness of the challenges of doing so.

Culture is incredibly important and the transition from a culture that organically emerges among a small founding group to one that can sustain and flourish as an organization grows is very challenging. Thank you for all of your hard work!

You do an amazing job with your community outreach, recruiting, and basically everything that encompasses our branding on a recruiting level.

I can't tell you enough how much of an asset you are. By far, you are the best recruiter we have ever had. You have a great attitude and you are always willing to help out.

You can look around our office and quickly and easily see the contributions.

Great to see the curation of talent from the different colleges networking events. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to helping people find their path, and for all of the things you do here and in the design community.

As always, Dave demonstrated why he is in a class of his own when it comes to recruitment.

Everyone appreciates his sociability, genuine spirit, desire to help others and passion. Dave also continues to be one of the nicest people, checking in regularly to see how people are doing.
