Hi. I'm Gary Bacon.I am a UX Designer and UX Researcher, Illustrator, and Front-end Developer. Rapid prototyping, iterative design, data-informed decisions, and human centered design are at the heart of my focus.

Recommendations

Problem solving always starts with people. I've had the opportunity to work with some incredible folks. We've had inspiring collaborations, solved complex problems, and lifted the experience overall.

Gary's understanding of what his clients need even before they do is astounding. He was able to see my vision, understand my tenacity for perfection and work under tight deadlines.

In short, he should be hired at all costs when setting a new bar with new imaginative ideas.

I worked directly with Gary as our UI designer. He was responsible for creating the site that housed all of our content. He made sure that all our needs were addressed and that we were able to keep our content in the format we needed.

His attention to detail and focus on results were invaluable to our team. Would definitely work with him again.

Gary is a true professional who pours his passion into his work. He dives into every part of the design process, from figuring out user requirements to implementing his designs in code.

His expertise in all these areas makes him an invaluable resource to any product team. He drives the people around him to excellence, and demands excellence from himself.

Life long learner is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Gary. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Gary for 3 years, during which he was my manager on the UX team.

Above all, I was impressed with Gary’s ability to harness many different skills that are part of the design and development process. And, of course, his questioner mentality partnered with his ability to stay up on industry trends made me respect him even more.

Gary would be a true asset for any position requiring a strong grasp of UX methodologies and understanding of the development process and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.

Collaboration, brainstorming, encouragement, and creative problem solving are just a few of the positive qualities Gary brings to the workplace.

Great designers don't just do their job 9-5, they live and breathe their work/industry, and Gary is one of those designers. His interest in all things tech, design and development are a part of him inherently, and it's refreshing to work with him. Gary not only stays on top of all of the latest best practices and web standards, he's also a thought leader as new technologies emerge and pose new design challenges. I would highly recommend Gary to any organization that needs an expert in the field of web design & development.
