Thanks for your visit. My name is Courtney—nice to meet you!I wear lots of black v-neck tees and love coffee, dogs, and karaoke. If you’re here to check out my work, this site has samples and case studies so you can get a peek into my thinking and process. For all the nitty-gritty details on my skills and work history, check out my resume. While you’re at it, read what colleagues say about working with me in the recommendations section of my LinkedIn profile. If you have questions about my work or would like to talk about a role on your team, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I prefer to be involved in the end-to-end design process, from concepting and wireframes, through to high-fidelity visuals and the creation of production assets and supporting materials. I find user-studies totally thrilling and appreciate the opportunity to validate and iterate on design approaches as we move closer to a final product. I also do a fair amount of front-end development and am happy to contribute those skills in any way that can help move a project forward. At REI and Microsoft I took on full-stack design roles and I like to see and support projects through final production.
Last year I started teaching in Seattle Central’s design program (where I got my degree). I love being in the classroom on Fridays, but am looking for the right position to fill out the rest of my week. If you're looking for a mid/senior level addition your team, let’s talk! I am open to freelance, contract, or full time opportunities that work around my teaching schedule.
When I’m not working on digital stuff, I design posters for free at Posteraweek.com. Creating posters is a fulfilling way to work on real projects for people without access to professional design services.
