I am a Motion Designer, animator and UX Designer. I enjoy researching, planning and designing engaging user experiences. I love design. I love how life influences design. I love how design influences life. I also really enjoy working with cool people to create really, really amazing things.
Simplicity is golden! Unless, of course, the message is to display the opposite. In the chaos of information and media overload, users need crisp, simple interfaces that are intuitive, uncluttered, and responsive to their needs.
In a slick design, detail matters! Creating polished, integrated designs makes me tick - always bearing in mind the Universal Principles of Design.
Slick animations turn me on. I have been animating over the last 12 years or so, using predominately After Effects, Premiere & Animate (previously Flash, before Apple kicked in).
Low-fi sketch ups, wireframes, PSD mocks, mock user interactions. Iterative development, interaction animations, demoable prototypes (code, PSDs, user interactions & code).
User & usability research, user profiling, journey maps, taxonomy research,
Paper prototyping & card sorting. I do a mean lunch napkin mock!
Pixel-perfect code realizations. Content strategies. JS frameworks & JS automation tooling (Node). Unix scripting for deployments, git, ssh, rsync & making OSX pur like my pug.
Infographics, titles, promos, web banner ads, light weight website animations, logo animations. Keynotes & animated titles. I use After Effects, Maya, Adobe Animate, Highcharts & D3.
Whether it's a slick animation, app, a site, data visualization, or billboard poster, I am always looking for new exciting projects to be a part of.
