I’ve been a professional designer for a little over 5 years now. My background is mainly in branding and print, however, I’ve chosen web design as my main focus. I am self-taught for the most part, but I’ve worked with some amazing people who have made huge contributions to the knowledge I have as a designer and developer.
I chose web design over print because it allows me to focus on what I do best – Design. Unlike print, web design is malleable and constantly changing due to how often new trends & technologies emerge. To keep up with the times, most designers have had to expand their skills and dive into front-end development. I was resistant to this at first, but over time I’ve found it extremely rewarding and fun.
My skills as a designer/developer allow me to recognize a client’s needs and come up with a beautiful web interface that is both functional and easy to use.
