Resume of David Mead

Information Architect & User Experience Designer

About

Over 20 years of experience in the design & development of web sites, Intranets, advertising projects, and apps. Working with large corporations, and small companies, both as clients and employers.

I am self-motivated, have excellent communication skills, and a passion for web standards. I create user-centered designs, based on feedback, interviews, analytics, and user testing. I hand-code my own semantic, accessible, HTML mocks. Comfortable in programs such as Sketch/InVision for static mocks.

Keeping up with the latest thinking & methodologies has helped me to deliver great results for every project I'm involved with.
