Hi, my name is David and I’m a UX Designer (whatever that means)…
Every job I’ve had and every project I have worked on has taught me something about design, and there are so many awesome designers out in the world of all ages, genders, backgrounds and expertise, and they all have something to teach. That’s the cool thing about design, if you’re being creative then you can learn something new.
I’ve never really settled into a particular area of design that I like the most. I started off loving animation and Flash (rip) and the power of Actionscript during my time at TAFE, then my first ‘proper’ design job was working for a print magazine designing layouts and ads as well as magazine covers which pushed my creativity and taught me a new skill set and tools.
My work since then has moved increasingly towards the web, designing websites and creating full branding and marketing strategies. Most recently I have been creating User Interfaces for web based applications and delving into User Experience models. With the advent and subsequent all encompassing rise of mobile and tablet devices I now find myself working on responsive designs and needing to learn more and more about the front end web development world so that I can create the best design for my clients, and their users.
I love what I do, and I look forward to continuing to learn new skills and trying new things.
