Buttons Don't Push Themselves
UI, UX, and Web Design
Good UI allows users to accomplish tasks. Outstanding UI engages and excites users to perform those tasks.
When designing an interface, I look to do the following:
- Eliminate the tedious.
- Remove the ambiguous.
- Make it elegant and functional.
- Test, observe, and improve where needed.
Squiggly Lines and Colors
I use a Wacom Cintiq HD 13, and Photoshop, to draw my digital illustrations. I can illustrate all manner of things, and my favorite is to draw people as cartoons.
Contact me, if you’d like me to draw you as a cartoon!
Pictures Bigger than My Car
I can get a wee-bit carried away with roller derby artwork… For two seasons, I produced HD artwork for fans and skaters alike, projected on the big screen at the Hall of Dames. The experience taught me to experiment more radically.
Most artwork was themed based on the skater’s team (pinups, ghouls), nickname, or the nearest holiday – Halloween being my favorite!
What's a Selfie?
Though I don’t offer my photography as a service, I do take photos of Banked Track Roller Derby. From that, I can recommend a couple great photographers local to the Phoenix area: Heyoooo! Photos and OhBrad Jamit.
I do offer to take product photos if they’re related to the work. (for example, for a website).
