I have been working professionally as a designer for the last 4 years. I have worked on a large range of projects within many design disciplines (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 spent my rare spare time while not freelancing, learning web development. This knowledge acts as 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 & 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.
