About Dekker Slade
Art Director & Designer
I am an Art Director with over 10 years of industry experience in various design fields, and over 5 years in a directorial role. As a design director, I have had many years to refine my design process, methodology, and aesthetic style. I bring a high level of experience with modern design practices and standards and am confident in my ability to lead design initiatives on a number of different platforms (web, iOS, android, etc.)., incorporating appropriate project management methodologies such as agile, traditional, waterfall, adaptive, etc.
I am a self-motivated, creative thinker and problem solver and have an entrepreneurial mindset, a passion for both functional and visual design, and an affinity for emerging trends and technology. I am driven by my love for innovation and the continual pursuit of growth and development of my personal design philosophy and vision as an designer. As a designer inspired by inventive and original ideas and collaborating with talented and intelligent individuals. I believe in an open-minded approach to solving problems through design and
critical thinking. I am a lifelong learner who continues to evolve my skill set to not only keep up with emerging design trends, but to define them.
I work closely with my clients as an extension of their team to help them realize their vision and execute their ideas — helping nationally recognized brands evolve their image, reinvent their online presence, build products and create a connection with their audience.
