My name is Will, I’m a graphic designer, a web developer, and a great listener.
A friend and former coworker once described me as the “bridge between the technical staff and the content staff”—thanks to experience in the processes required to gather requirements and create design, and the ability to also program and build the sites or applications I was designing, I found I had a talent for “translating” between audiences: programmers and designers, content developers and clients.
However, I think the secret to success in a digital age is that regardless of the technology, we’re building applications and experiences for humans. As long as the experience is intuitive and natural, stimulating and inviting, the technology the experience is delivered on doesn’t matter. It’s all about the people using it, and thus, the people building it.
I was fortunate enough to begin developing for digital audiences as rich interactive experiences were still being experimented with. I’m not going to go to deep into my experience here; view my LinkedIn profile, download my resume, or get in contact and we can chat. Suffice to say, I was lucky enough to get into web development at the beginning, survived a dot com bubble burst, and came out of it running a successful web design company for a decade before moving on to new and exciting stuff.
I’ve worked with massive organizations like Microsoft, the Department of Energy, and The Getty, as well as small mom and pop businesses and streamlined technology companies who just need someone to fill in as their creative design and development department. I can work with you as a third party consultant, or be presented as a natural member of your team to your clients. My promise is that I will listen for and deliver that which matters to you, and your client.
Look forward to speaking with you!
