I like to make things, so I became a designer.
I tend to break things, so I became a web developer.
The design part is straightforward: Form Follows Function – make things that have personality and are unique, but always achieve their purpose. It takes a lot of practice and there are no shortcuts. Make, reiterate, rinse, repeat.
The Web part is much more complex and things change really fast; best practices, platforms, technologies..., but every part is as much fun as it is wildly frustrating!
As this process tends to start with logo design, here are a few neat examples. If you want me to create yours contact me here >
