One of those Designer, Developer, Naturalist hybrids.
I’ve been designing for 10 years. Currently, I work as a Designer for iMarket in Colchester, Vermont. I create lead generating websites for contractors. We don’t use templates, so each project is designed from scratch and customized to the client’s branding. The site’s designs have sharply improved since the launch of our Conversion Principles. Design decisions are easier to make and to explain when you can point to an agreed on best practice.
I check with Development to rein in my wilder ideas, and take my rough words to Content to get them smoothed and sanded. Here are some recent collaboration snippets:
Design systems. UX. The Design Community. Productive meetings. Tiny music venues. Canoe camping. Winter hiking. The mountains of the northeast. Fireflies and peepers. Drums not drum machines. Citizen science. Swimming. Clear writing. Barefoot on grass. Twin Peaks. Learning Polish. Daddydom. Destroying apathy. Pocket computers. Growing food. Crêpes. Gift economy. Chomsky.
