“Wishing Y. Buffalo” Has 12 years experience and is looking for a new remote role as a Director of Design.

I'm a fence-sitter. I like to sit on the boundary between product design and front-end engineering. I started out as a designer back in the days of "web 2.0" and "skeuomorphism" but increasingly found myself wanting and needing to build the things I designed. So I ventured deeper and deeper into HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

I really enjoy thinking about how design can be a facilitating bridge between an organization's product and engineering teams. I love treading the ground between how you go from textual representations of features to static visual design mocks to dynamic user interfaces, as my skills span these three areas. And that can be me doing the work myself, or helping build and direct a team to do it.
