Hello, my name is Damon Carlstrom. I am an Experience Designer & Developer currently living in Tampa, FL, USA.
Throughout my professional experience thus far, I have developed an eclectic, in-depth set of skills and knowledge – from initial concept and design to final implementation. I believe this to be valuable because it gives me a high-level view of the product as a whole, as well as an understanding of the components it is made of.
I consider myself a life-long learner who enjoys the creative process as much as the final product. I prefer to work in an environment that encourages growth and fresh ideas. Always up for a challenge – I just like creating innovative solutions and having fun doing it.
3D Animation & Compositing
The area I have become most focused in is UI/UX design. I have 2 years of experience working specifically in these fields, with much more time spent researching best practices and new concepts.
When prototyping or wireframing, I’m comfortable using Axure (or similar advanced prototyping tool) to creating responsive, interactive designs.
I am definitely interested in learning Angular, Backbone, Ember, or just Node.js in the future.
I began with 2D motion graphics for web or video (Flash & After Effects) about 4 years ago. As the web evolved, I moved over to using more mobile-friendly solutions instead of Flash, such as Edge Animate or just web animations with CSS3, jQuery and SVGs.
About 3 years ago I dove into actual 3D modeling, animations, and compositing (still-image and video), using Cinema4D alongside either Photoshop or After Effects. I don’t spend a great deal of time doing 3D or motion graphics compared to the other areas, but would consider myself moderately skilled.
I have done work for a variety of clients or employers, from small to medium ad agencies to larger Fortune 500 companies.
Please feel free to send me a message. I am currently in the market for new, exciting opportunities.
