the Man, the Myth, the Legend
As a pencil-wielding digital craftsman, I conjure up bad ass creative with my mad visual skills. I've had the privilege of helping some great clients including Rackspace, Geekdom, Harland Clarke, Hill Country Truck Store, & cafecollege to name a few. My background is in print design, brand identity, and art direction. I focus on designing and developing experiences that make people's lives simple, using design theory, UI/UX, and front-end development as my tools.
"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something they feel a little guilty because they did not really do it, they just saw something..."
"Graphic Design will save the world right after rock and roll does."
Creativity is for people with glasses who like to lie.
“It’s through mistakes that you actually can grow. You have to get bad in order to get good.”
“Never fall in love with an idea. They’re whores. If the one you’re with isn’t doing the job, there’s always, always, always another.”
“Digital design is like painting, except the paint never dries.”
“Good design is all about making other designers feel like idiots because that idea wasn’t theirs.”
"It took me a few seconds to draw it, but it took me 34 years to learn how to draw it in a few seconds."
"Practice safe design: Use a concept."
"A user interface is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it’s not that good."
"If you think good design is expensive, you should look at the cost of bad design."
"Make it Simple, but Significant."
"If you have to live with uncertainty, you may as well pursue what you care about deeply."
"To live a creative life, we must loss our fear of being wrong"
"A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week."
