Hi I’m Dan
I’m a freelance designer in Kansas City. The majority of my work have been in identity, layout and illustrative fields but I have a working knowledge of html, css, java, flash and php. I’ve also completed graduate level course work in interaction design and I am using that knowledge to explore app UI/UX.
I am always looking for a new challenge and be it in life or in design. I have acquired my AA and BA in graphic design, studying both in the U.S.A. and Germany. I have completed design work on both continents(Europe and North America) and in multiple countries. If you are looking for someone with a well rounded set of experience in and outside of design I think you would be hard pressed to find better. My current free time is being spent working on my web development and design abilities as well as hand lettering and type design.
I love cycling, cooking, travel and making things. I'f I'm not working on a project, I'll be doing one of those things.

I've done a lot of moving about, to see how many views I could get of the world. I don't plan on stopping either. Through my experiences I've learned so much. And through all of those adventures I keep creating, some days its lettering, others is icons and then at times there are also some product designs in there as well.
I do not want the limitations of what tools I don't have keep me from creating a successful design.</span>
I begin my work on paper with a mechanical pencil I've owned for 12 years. Depending on what the project is I'm working on I move to ink or digital. This workflow has done well for me, it keeps me agile and able to cope with tight deadlines. I'm not cluttered by the need for a massive toolkit, in fact my tool kit, lunch and a bottle of water fit neatly in a bag with room to spare.
Needing fewer tools means fewer excuses for why a project isn't done on time, and it is why I have never had a deadline slip.
