Establishing Morals Within Design
Design is a great thing within culture. It’s one of the most influential messengers we humans have to offer to one another. Design has created tons of awareness for great causes, missions, and campaigns, but I’d argue that most West-European modern design within the last 100 years has done more damage than good.
The Art of Freelancing
Freelancing is a game that not all can play and do well with. In fact, I’d argue that it takes more brains, hard work, and energy than most have the power to carry out. Freelancing isn’t something a designer (if they can title themself that yet) can just jump into. A certain level of experience is required to know how to communicate, estimate budgets as well as their estimated delivery times, and properly manage their money.
Friday Feature #3
Felicia Cantu | http://feliciacantu.com/
As a now licensed Apparel Contractro for Nike, Felicia kills Portland competition with her amazing typographic, and illustrative style. I graduated with this girl, and being a little sass, she’ll blow you away with how good she is. Guess Nike golf-clapped to that reality :) Get at her!
Friday Feature #1
This cat is one of my best buds within the industry. He’s killing it over at Emerge Interactive right now, and has a keen sense of clean minimalism to create beautiful experiences. His skills speak for themself, and he’s an overall awesome guy. Eat it up.
The Friday Feature // Creative Profile Gallery
I’m going to start doing what I’m calling FRIDAY FEATURES. This is an effort to create hype for great designers, developers, creatives, etc. These people are friends, colleagues, co-workers, and anyone who I really feel is nailing it within the industry right now. I’m going to mostly focus on people around Portland though, to spread hype within our own community. Enjoy!
New Contract - Web Design Job
Well, today I start a new contract job. Looks like I’ll be signing for a 3 month stint to work on some really cool stuff. The people who are hiring me are seasoned veterans and I’m really excited to learn from them as I help them grow from my skills within design.
Wish me luck!

I'm New. Let's get at it!
- Hey guys!
- So, I gave up on Wordpress, and read that Tumblr has better SEO anyways, so here I am. I'd like to officially welcome you and let you know that this is the place where my thoughts on interactive design, music, Faith, and my life happenings will be shared via the internets. Welcome!
