Prior to beginning my UX career, I have a long history of freelance. There was always a little extra time during the Summers when I was going to school and later, teaching, to take on graphic design side jobs. Some of these include Web Design, Graphic Design, Illustration, Textile Design, Photoshop, Painting, and Patent Drawing. Although my primary focus is now on UX Design, this background gives me deeper insight into design and allows me to be able to lend a hand with in lots of different ways when useful.
Traditional Media Illustration
I have a dream of one day incorporating traditional media techniques into a website. How fun might it be to have a site that looks like an architectural blueprint, or that has slowly bleeding edges like fresh watercolor laid into wet paper.
