Multidisciplinary Design + Strategy Professional ecorbindesigner@gmail.com

I untangle project complexities (not just the deliverables) and help humans make useful things.

I am a multidisciplinary designer and strategist with experience in branding, digital graphics, user experience and interface design, web development, publication design, advertising and marketing. My creative tool belt incorporates human-centered philosophies to improve productivity, efficiency, while creating problem solving digital products and positive experiences.

My background is rooted in hands-on design, so I am intimately familiar with each step of design and development processes, from concept to completion. This hands-on experience has allowed me to produce project outcomes that range from original illustrations, publication design, marketing and corporate print collateral to storyboards, wireframes, high fidelity HTML/CSS prototypes, UX artifacts, digital assets, frontend web development and design strategy plans.

I have worked closely with business owners, art and creative directors, designers, marketers, copywriters, instructional designers, project managers, software engineers, IT teams and developers to produce products for a variety of business, government and consumer audiences.
