Denny Royal

Chief Design Officer


Denny’s background in design research, customer experience, brand design, behavior design, biomimicry, and technology allows him to bring a holistic approach to solving clients’ challenges. And speaking of biomimicry… he is one of only about 80 people in the world with his level of biomimicry training.

Denny brings over 25 years of design leadership experience to MentorMate where he oversees and leads the growth of the global experience design team. Prior to his current role as Chief Design Officer, he served as a creative executive for a number of top design firms and start-ups.

Outside of work, his interests lie, well, outside. His free time is generally spent freeride mountain biking and skiing, riding motorcycles, and fly fishing. He also really enjoys all aspects of food — from foraging to cooking to eating.
