Have a project in mind? Want to discuss your love of maps, sheet music, or books? Get in touch!
At my clearest, most direct, and most user friendly.
For me, that’s what functional design needs to be: a boiling down of something into its clearest, most direct, and most user-friendly. Whether that be as sharp and information-dense as a highway map, or as sparse and intentionally-designed as a beautiful website depends on the project.
I’m currently employed as a graphic designer in Northwest Arkansas. Most of my free time consists of running around, sipping a dark cup of coffee, or sticking my nose in a good book.
As far as personal design preference goes, I enjoy maps. I really enjoy maps. I also enjoy how sheet music can be beautiful in the way that it summarizes elaborate sounds, just like typography can be beautiful in the way that it summarizes elaborate thoughts. Those enjoyments, in a nutshell, are what draw me to design.
