I AM VERY MECHANICAL
I TAKE A VERY METHODICAL APPROACH TO EVERY PROJECT..
Ever since I was a kid, I loved taking things apart to see how they worked. The challenge was putting it back together. I am still very much in this mindset today. As a web developer and creative in general, there is a lot of constructing and deconstructing of projects, designs, workflows and so on.
It’s this process that I feel really helps one better understand the meanings behind what you are doing, and more importantly, why you are doing what you are. I see it all too often these days, what I call “design without reason.”
Simply put, design with no concept of the messaging involved, relationships to other graphic elements, proximity etc. Taking a methodical, planned out approach to projects, forcefully eliminates the “design without reason”. The concepts, messaging, & content, all rises over the most elaborate interface, design, or application. It is these “concepts & messages” that should drive the design, and harnesses and present the content as polished trophy.
I have a passion for user centered design, and user experience. I strive to elevate the standard on the web by utilizing the latest techniques, and best practices to ensure the final product is extendable, intuitive, and fast.
Look what I can do!
I like to describe myself as a jack–of–all trades…
I guess I could be called a pixel perfectionist, or a bezier bender, or even a Motion Monster, the skills and naming conventions that I could be referenced as range the spectrum. However, by no means do I posses wizardry to a caliber that would match the Mario Bro’s gaming skills of Fred Savage’s brother in the Wizard.
What I do have is a rare set of skills that has given me the knowledge and technical ability to manage, create, teach, LEARN, and communicate on a multitude of levels. I have a passion for taking things that make people want to punch themselves in the face to hugging their screen.
