Who's Wade?

I'm Wade

I'm a UX focused designer with much of my work incorporating a clean aesthetic with the end user in mind. My work is centered around the user and developing a solution for an obstacle.

My background in design is diverse and I utilize my different design disciplines in much of my work.

I'm currently not accepting any new freelance projects until I complete my UX Design Certificate Program at the School of Visual Concepts which will culminate in spring 2017.

Take a gander at my work, and feel free to contact me.

Process

First and foremost, I approach each new project with the user in mind and business goals that are required to make a project successful.

A major part of my process begins with understanding the end user as best as I can by determining their goals or needs before. I think of it much like a method actor and imagine as best I can of being the end user myself.
