Fighting the evils of horrid online experiences.


Hi! My name is Bill De Smet and I’m on a mission to make aesthetically intuitive online solutions.

Sure I could get into the holistic approach on how I work (see “The Process”). Throw in some words of praise and tell you that I’m better then the next guy.

The truth is, its hard to find a good creative professional that understands the SDLC (software development life cycle) enough to deliver a product thats minimal viable and engage the user in a gamification kind of way. That’s where my experience really pays-off.

In the beginning I honed my craft at high-profile firms like The Dupuis Group, Disney, GT and Mongoose Bicycles as a traditional graphic designer. I freelanced at some of largest design agencies in Los Angeles and became an associate creative director for Redguitar a local advertising firm where I embraced the Web. It was really my first introduction into HTML. Trial by fire you could say!

My journey continued into my own studio, where for ten years I designed and managed Web projects large and small. I learned by doing. I worked with front and back-end developers to roll out web projects. In essences I was digital project manager a product manager and quality assurance expert. You could say I was wearing a lot of hats.

Since then I decided to plunge head first into a B.S. degree program at Capella University that focuses on developing system solutions for mobile technology. I did this so I have a better understanding on how to communicate with software engineers and developers on a enterprise level and give me the skills to be a UX developer. I felt that if I understood how things worked I can design a better product.

When you hire me you’re getting experience. That experience allows me to quickly get to the core of a tough challenge and develop smart solutions that deliver measurable results. Read Less
