Hello. I'm a Designer and Front-End Developer.

User Experience

A fantastic first impression always
begins with a solid foundation of
a good user experience. Ensuring
the users are not only happy with
a product, but also enjoy using it,
can be paramount to success.

Website & UI Design

Content may be king, but nobody
respects a king with a disgraceful
castle. Having a phenomenal user
interface is more than just pretty
pixels, it's based on data-driven
design, focusing on your users.

Front-End Development

Finally, turning the concepts and
research into reality. Ensuring the
finished website not only functions
as a beautifully unified system, but
also is mantianable, responsive,
and semtantic, is a top priority.

Our company has worked with Dustin for several projects, and his skills have been vital to our success.

Responsive vs adaptive workflows

Responsive web design has become a catch-all term for making your website work well at low resolutions. Smartphones brought a revolution to the mobile web, and tablets are throwing another wrench into the gears with their growing popularity.
