Who I am

Hello there, allow me to present myself

My name is Andy Van Wagoner, I'm a senior level UI Designer, a Usability Nerd, and a rather savvy Front-End Web Developer. I specialize in user experience design, video game / app UI, front-end web development, logo design, and iconography. I’m currently employed with WildWorks, an up-and-coming children’s media company. I like games, mountain biking, spicy food, and crappy action flicks.

Check out my personal synopsis to learn more about who I am, and what it is that makes me tick.

What I can do for you

Simply put, I can improve the user experience and UI design of your existing projects, or create smashing new designs for your next big idea. From usability audits, to interaction wireframes and prototypes, to UI mockups, or wrapping an entirely new design over an existing architecture, I’m comfortable jumping in at any stage of UX / UI development.

If you are looking for a someone with front end web development chops, I'm wicked-good with: HTML, SCSS, and JavaScript. I also have experience with Foundation, jQuery, Rails, Wordpress, and other popular frameworks, platforms, and tools.

Check out my professional synopsis for more details about the services I can provide, and how I like get things done.

What I want

I want to use my skills and experience to make an impact, something that I can see with my own eyes. Of course, the position is only a part of the equation. Being at a company where I'm challenged to grow, and working on a product that I care about, is a pretty big deal with me.
