What is it exactly that you do?
If your path has taken you in a direction you never imagined, we have much in common.
I have a deep amount of experience in the design side of things, but early on in my work history found that I was keenly fascinated with how things work. I taught myself HTML in 1995, when I first registered dempseystudio.com. That's nearly twenty years ago at this writing. Twenty years is a long time in Internet years; it's a long time by any measure.
My latest chapter involves developing the front end. I am also fanatical about social media as a tool to engage prospects. Toss that in the stew with a fixation for SEO, optimizing pages, W3C compliance, responsive web design (RWD) and... I think you get the picture. Usability/user-centered design (UX) is an area I enjoy thoroughly. In 2015, as part of the consulting world, I was deployed on engagements delivering a usability assessment for healthcare benefits and UX/UI for financial services.
I really love to blog, because an ideal environment for me is one that is truly collegial, where the sharing of knowledge is top-of-mind among the team. While I am employed full-time in the Wine & Spirits industry, I have room for select freelance projects on a moonlighting basis. Recent freelance projects involved visual design for motion graphics in healthcare as well as an innovative deck for a household consumer beverage platform. I pride myself on being able to talk with all levels of an organization. Let's discuss how we can collaborate on something cool.
As I am rebuilding my online presence, there may be a need to visit the "classic" Dempseystudio site.
