Who I am

Hello there, allow me to present myself

My name is Andy Van Wagoner, I am a Senior Level UI Designer, and a rather savvy Front-End Web Developer. I specialize in front-end web development, video game UI, 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 if you want to know more about me.

What I can do for you

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

If you are looking for a Front End Web Developer, I'm experienced (and wicked good) at writing clean HTML, (D.R.Y.) SCSS, and Javascript. I also have experience with Bootstrap, Jquery, Workpress, and other popular frameworks, platforms, and tools.

Check out my professional synopsis and resume if you want to know more about the services I can provide, or how I like get things done.

What I want

I want a gig where I can 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.
