As a designer, I believe in developing a deep understanding and working knowledge of the systems with which I am designing.
Today that means code
Although I am in no way a serious programmer in any professional sense, as a designer I believe in having a deep understanding and working knowledge of the tools and landscape with which I am designing. In today’s world, that means code. Primarily I write code for my own personal projects although I have been know to throw-in on front end work for startup projects when needed.
Apps & Extensions
I work on my own personal app design and development projects and collaborate as a consultant and contributor to a number of startup projects esp. focused on iOS, blockchain and mobile web applications.
Until just recently (with the launch of this site), I have always coded and developed my own interactive portfolio website (7+ iterations to date). I have also contributed to a number of other e-commerce and front end marketing web development projects including custom Shopify themes, Tumblr themes, Bootstrap themes and more.
I am always working to improve my efficiency and accuracy -
in doing so, I leverage the power of code and machine programming to automated design tasks and workflows using AppleScript and Automator in combination with the Shortcuts iOS app.
A few of my favorite tools:
Front end web development framework for rapidly launching responsive web design experiences.
Code editor with extensions and plug-ins to make programming quick and easy to implement.
