Design

My first experience in web design was in 1996, a few months before CSS was released. Since then, I've worked on many web implementation and graphic design projects over the years.

Design is about making decisions within constraints. I approach projects with the following questions in mind:

  • What makes for the smoothest, richest experience?
  • How do I stay out of the way of my users?
  • How is color best used?
  • How are visual media pieces featured on the site?
  • What does the typography/logo say about the solution?

I teach User Experience Design at General Assembly; have worked as a Senior UX Designer in the agency world; write at Sense and Rhythm; and sometimes contribute to higher education and museum teams.
