We Can Make Great Things Together

It’s my passion to explore the edges of design—wherever that may lead. I believe that design is for everyone and that it’s not limited to the visual representation. For over a decade, I’ve dedicated my life to designing everything from websites and brands to spaces and organizational processes. It’s ALL the user experience and it’s all opportunity for design.

One of the things that I love about HUGE is that you’re not a typical agency. Your work speaks for itself that there’s this organizational curiosity that yields amazing innovation and intentional design. Your process of learning, iterating, and launching echoes my own.

Some Things I’ve Done

Here are some snapshots of work that I’ve done over the past few years in the interactive space. Everything from WordPress Multi-sites to, most recently, a sizable healthcare software enterprise.

Here are a few questions that I get asked a lot. Perhaps my answering them here will give you a clearer picture of who I am and what I’m about.

Design is everything.

Design is the lens in which we find opportunity and unlock potential. It’s a strategic partnership and a thoughtful journey so much more than an execution of visual elements or material objects.

Design means a chance to get to understand something from its core and surface its authenticity. It means connecting to people and thoughtfully finding the answers together.

I think on the mission statement from LIFE magazine as a perfect definition for what design means: “To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”

General curiosity really. That and being attached to a zillion email lists for groups like Creative Bloq and Web Designer News. I also love to see what Adobe’s doing with some of their new projects like Project Felix, which, if you haven’t played around with, you really should.

I’m pretty captivated by software and hardware on the whole, so I love the opportunity to dive into a new tool and test its limits. I’m not sure what I’d do without my iPad pro and Apple Pencil. And I like the possibilities presented by Microsoft’s move into the creative space with the Surface Studio. Also Wacom’s new MobileStudio Pro.

I like to keep an eye on trends in the event that there’s something there that makes sense for a project that I’m in to, but I’d never allow a trend to drive a design. It cheapens the process by making it all about the visual and behavioral layers of an experience without discovering and surfacing the intent.

I think we all remember what happened with trends like web 2.0 and skeumorphism. They ran rampant and we were all the lesser for it. I’m cautious of places like Dribbble for that reason. They run overfull with trendy design, but it’s ‘armchair design’ at best. No context, just aesthetics.
