Interactive Designer

Chicago, IL, USA
I am a cross-disciplinary designer specializing in visual and user experience design. I also have technical skills in HTML and CSS. I like to solve problems and enjoy both interactive design on the computer and using raw materials to create. I am looking to develop my career in one or more of these areas as a user experience designer or art director. I would welcome freelance, permanent or contract-to-permanent opportunities focusing on interactive in the city of Chicago.
