I have been working professionally as a designer for the last 5 years. I have worked on a large range of projects within many design disciplines including digital interfaces, websites and print. I enjoy the challenge of solving problems with design while also creating an unparalleled easy to use “user experience”.
I have spent my rare spare time while not freelancing, learning web development. This knowledge acts as a great tool to allow me to create smaller websites from scratch and communicate with developers in their own language, bridging the gap between design and engineering.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing for my local football team and expanding my knowledge of global economics and strategy.
In the computer science world, the phrase “full-stack” (or full-stack designer) was coined to mean someone who could single-handedly tackle every layer of software development. These exceptional folks had their pick of jobs and commanded exorbitant salaries. Still do, actually.
