UI/UX Design

I’ve been doing UI/UX design for nearly my whole career. I started off designing interfaces in Director. I designed presentations for CD-ROMs and laptops. When I discovered Flash it was called Future Splash and was known for being a good animation platform. I learned how to create interactive sites using Actionscript. I learned how to program in Actionscript 2.0. and continued into Actionscript 3.0. Actionscript is a lot like Javascript. They are based on the same language standard, ECMA. I also have experience in HTML coding. I started designing web sites before Dreamweaver was even available but when it came out I worked on developing sites using Dreamweaver. Developing sites was never quite WYSIWYG with Dreamweaver. You always had to tweak things in the code. For interface design, I use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. The pixel grid in Illustrator has helped a lot with making pixel perfect graphics. And artboards has helped with developing multiple screens in the same file. I also developed my skills with CSS. I produced a web site following the book CSS Zen Garden. Since then I have continued to expand my knowledge of CSS3 and HTML 5. I’ve also gained experience using content management systems like WordPress.
