Going back to the beginning...

I started "designing" before I even really knew what design was.

I was a ten year old on a mission, determined to show my little league baseball coach that we could have better uniforms. The weapon of choice: Microsoft Paint.

Fast forward a few years...

& pretty much everything in my life still revolved around baseball. 

I was a high school kid with a big league dream. At the same time, I started to dive deeper into design, eventually becoming the editor of the yearbook. (H.A.G.S!)

Hung up the spikes for Austin.

I enrolled at the University of Texas still not really knowing what it was that I wanted to do.

Landing an internship as a freshman design intern was a lucky break, and it wasn't until working at Harris Media that I realized I could make a career out of doing this design thing. I changed my major to Advertising the next semester.

Fresh out of school,

I landed at an agency in Dallas called Studiogood. 

Over the course of three years and some change, I led the design of an agency rebrand (now Matchfire), learned a ton about the startup and nonprofit worlds,  and sharpened my skills as a designer.

Most importantly:

I found my work was helping solve important, real problems on a much larger scale than I thought possible,

and realized being a designer can mean more than pushing pixels around on a screen.

A designer can matter—if he/she chooses to focus their energy in the right places.

These days, the majority of my freelance work tends to revolve around things I'm interested in: the outdoors, fishing, land conservation, athletics, helping friends, and the occasional glass or three of wine.

I'm passionate about design and try to get better every day because I give a damn about what I do.

Let me give a damn about the work I can do for you.

I'm Devin,

a multidisciplinary designer with a background in advertising currently based in Austin, Texas.

I'm currently working as a Brand Designer for BigCommerce (a SaaS ecommerce platform) and fitting in freelance opportunities whenever possible. I've worked for brands like Adobe, American Airlines, Chuck Norris, Compassion International, Teach.org, the UN Development Program, and a mixed bag of smaller tech startups and national nonprofits. 

I find myself especially interested in innovation & purpose-led brands, and how  those components are strategically woven into brand identities to make people care.

To put it simply, I'm passionate about design, and am obsessively driven to be a better designer every day.

I'm passionate about making beautiful things that have purpose, and I'm obsessively driven to be a better designer every day.
