First of all, Collin does not write in third-person so this bio will be written like I (Collin) am writing it. I (again, that's me, Collin) feel fortunate to have spent the last 10+ years designing for all sorts of people in all sorts of places and situations: considering the whole experience from what a person needs going in, what they want during, and how they feel after. I've worked in small boutique advertising agencies and large digital firms; with start-ups and well-established brands; from large-scale environmental wayfinding to small digital products, and it all comes down to doing one thing well: solving problems for people. Sometimes it's as wonderful as evoking a smile, other times it's necessary to impart sobering, lasting facts; sometimes it needs to be quick, other times comprehensive. But the one unchanging, ever-changing aspect remains the person I'm designing for.
