Design = Communication

"Design is in everything we make, but it’s also between those things. It's a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy."

I consider myself a developer with an eye for marketing and design chops. What I mean by this is that whenever I’m creating a new site, product or service, I always think about the end-user first and their needs that can be solved. Putting myself in the customer’s perspective and shoes is a skill in itself. It requires me to develop in an objective mindset, while also adding my own advice on how to design things based on their goals, what they want to create, and call to action. It takes a true professional to create in this mindset even if tastes in designs or opinions differ.

I learn new languages and frameworks to apply best practices right away, not just for the sake of casually learning them (though that can be fun at times too). When I asked a developer at a conference once what language I should start off on, they gave me the best answer back, “What do you want to create?” It's not about how many tools you have or know, but what you ultimately plan to do with the tools that matters most. Below are some neat things I’ve worked on with video campaigns in the past, and also current UI-prototypes related to web development via Codepen.
