SKILLS

User Experience

In all of my work the user is at the forefront of every design consideration. User considerations must be understood and leveraged as the foundation of any web application or website. Generally, a process for these considerations would start with user personas, user story mapping, then empathy and experience maps.

Once those are complete, low-fidelity mockups can be tested in a process of potentially endless iteration of designs. Launch-worthy versions have their own iteration process, as well. The process is unending.

Interface & Interaction Design

While completing graduate coursework in Web Design and New Media, I discovered and thoroughly investigated the topics of Typography, Page and Grid Layout, and Color Theory as they apply to Graphic Design. Further, my curriculum has acquainted me with art history and the

philosophies that influenced art from neoclassical to the post-modern. I understand the separation of UX from UI design, but it's difficult to imagine a UX design not familiar with the visual language used in popular and historical contexts and still being able to use visual language effectively.

Front-End Development

I am self-taught from the beginning. With the desire to create more complex web apps, I took on new learning in front-end and back-end technologies. Currently I am familiar with HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, JQuery (UI and Mobile), PHP, the Codeigniter framework, and MYSQL.

In a continuing effort to improve and create more interesting web applications, I also took the time to become familiar with Angular.js, Express.js, and Node.js as well as MongoDB as a NoSQL database solution. My understanding of the modern capabilities of web applications helps inform my designs
