‘Experience Design,’ or UX/UI, is design based on a strategy that focuses on the emotional connection between a brand’s offering and the people that use it.

Tim's been a reliable go-to team member for us, helping anchor interactive design engagements for our clients across the country. With an engaged style of collaboration, Tim helps build a synergy of application's user experience into often technology-heavy projects that help the final deliverable come out very user friendly and human. What I appreciate most is his willingness to help across the team as well as throughout functions of business and development helps keep teams aligned.
In the time spent working closely with Tim during the past 3 years, I have appreciated his great availability and dedication to understand the product owner's needs and come up with relevant mockups or suggest alternate mockups to choose from. I increased my UX knowledge along the way thanks to his usability expertise so I can thank Tim for that. Looking forward to having other opportunities to work with Tim on other projects/products.
Tim is one of the most prolific and creative designers that I have worked with in my career. His keen knowledge of the latest technology coupled with his ability to turn things around quickly made him a winner on my team
Tim is not only an expert web designer but also a very hard worker. His ability to turn creatives around quickly has always served as an asset here at Real. Tim brings great knowledge, experience and taste to online design and site development. I can't recommend Tim highly enough.
