UX Design & UI Development

Simon Paul, making the web better for users with every touch.

A little about me...

My focus as designer is to provide clean, honest interfaces for the end user. As I've worked on websites over the past several years, I've found it necessary to venture into the development world. Becoming knowledgeable in front-end development has allowed me to create production code that matches the design at a near pixel perfect level. It's also helped with building prototypes for user testing and making educated design decisions. While design is my forte, I've grown equally passionate and detail oriented at front-end development/prototyping.

Having grown up in Columbus, Ohio, I'm a true buckeye. And through the great design program at The Ohio State University, I received my Bachelors of Science in Industrial Design. Although I started off in the 3D world of design, the process and design principals have easily translated to 2D interface design. And now with the advent of touch screens, the relation is even closer. Responsive design and touch interaction have truly honed the industry into a user focused design approach. Mobile optimization is key to longevity in any end product and something I strive for in all my projects.

Currently, I'm happily employed at Abercrombie & Fitch, a major clothing retailer. I enjoy freelance side projects that give me an opportunity to work with others in improving the end user experience. Feel free to take a look at some of my work. If you are interested in working together on a project, contact me.

Work, a showcase of UI design and development

My work as a UI/UX Designer has been focused on clean, clear interfaces. Although the aesthetic approach depends on the given project, I feel most projects work well with minimalist flat design. Interfaces should be intuitive and honest.

Through my work experience, I've had the opportunity to unify the UI across various projects and create a cohesive experiences for the end user. On most projects, I've designed and developed the front-end using Responsive Web Design (RWD) techniques to optimize for all screen sizes.
