Intro

Does this sound like you?

You’re a rockstar ui designer with a strong creative mind. You aspire daily and frankly aren’t far off the work that you see on awwwards.com and thefwa.com  When it comes to client meetings all you need to hear is a few sentences about what they want their product to be and already are thinking of the perfect color combo, typeface and 5 features that the client has even thought up. You’re the type of person that kicks ass and exceeds expectation on all levels during the day and are cool enough to grab a beer with on a Friday.
