Brian Thacker, Owner

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” – Anne Frank

This quote embodies my philosophy on design and its impact on the world. When I see something I deem as beautiful, the item pulls me into the present and leaves me feeling content and hopeful for the world. My hope is that my designs provide the same reaction in others. In this way, I’m helping to make a difference in the world.

My approach to design begins with inspiration based on the needs of my clients. What is the goal of the client? Who are the end users? How can I use design to motivate action from the users? My goal is to blend beautiful web designs into functional and actionable pieces.

Let’s create together!

BIO

As a professional, I have worked both in academics and in corporate. A common theme through these endeavors has been my propensity for technical know-how. A couple years ago I had the wisdom to move forward and obtain a web design/developer degree. Now I seek to continue to grow within a company as a web developer & designer.
