I Solve Puzzles So You Don’t Have To

I love a challenging puzzle, whether it’s the NY Times Sunday crossword or the layout of a whole summer’s offering of kid’s classes on a single 5 ½″ by 8 ½″ sheet. But, although finding a way to communicate information and ideas is often a puzzle, the finished design never should be!

What do operations managers visiting TiVo’s hardware engineering website need to know about packaging? How can the layout help them find what they need faster? What images, what words will move someone to contribute to a cause? For that online form, what really needs to be included, and can AJAX and javascript help make it a breeze to fill out?

All this puzzling has given me plenty of practice with the tools of the trade. I know how to exploit the advanced features of Adobe Creative Suite: InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat Pro, Dreamweaver and Flash to create engaging designs. I know how to fine tune the way a web page looks and acts by using HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, javascript, PHP, and WordPress.
