Can you tell us a bit about yourself Brandon?

I always had artistic inclinations (still do) and I was fascinated by the inner workings of machines (still am). Somehow, that led me to where I am today.

You like the color purple. What’s that about?

How did you get into design?

Early website design by Brandon.

Do you have a personal design, or specifically UX design, philosophy you live by or guidelines you follow?

Having the capacity to put yourself in someone else’s shoes while designing goes a long way. Self-indulgent designing leads to disaster.

Are there any other philosophies that you live by that you care to share?

  • Rest: Give yourself time to relax and think about nothing, sleep, or watch mindless TV. Find time to calm your brain waves so that you can go the extra mile when you need to.
  • Exist: Pause and consciously enjoy the moment. Notice the warmth of the sun on your skin, the sound of birds chirping, or how you feel when you’re out with friends. Life is short.
  • Explore: See the world, feed your curiosity, and learn something new. You never know what may support your next adventure.

Where do you find inspiration for your work in user experience design?

Essentially, designing for people — not personal preference or assumption — brings defined and strategic purpose to your work.

One of my goals is to help define the hand-off moments between disciplines, so that we’re defining what we’re designing, understanding why we’re designing it, and sharing what we’ve learned.
