it’s Ian O.

Seattle-based designer with 10+ years of experience

Design is like translation — I'm interpreting the needs of a client into just the right visual language that will resonate with their specific audience.

It feels good to use my skills to create new projects, work alongside interesting, talented people, and to bring home the bacon. After the bacon and I are home, I can use the very same skills to make fun cartoons or experiment with new software.

When I need a break from the screen, I play some tunes on my bass guitar or ride my bike. If I want to get out of the city, I'll go backpacking in the Olympic Mountains or travel to other countries with my wonderful wife, looking for inspiration in amazing landscapes and ancient cities.

A transformation for this natural health brand's style. I re-organized their web pages and created icons, infographics, and animation to add life to dense blocks of information.
