I.

Balance and alignment.

Never forget that every element you place on a page has a weight. The weight can come from color, size, or texture.

II.

Design is the sum of all things.

There’s no style over substance here. I bring together form and the function to create something that looks good and performs brilliantly. Simple.

III.

Open ­– In thinking, in style.

Clean, minimal and effective. This is my main method. Clean code, fuss-free interfaces and expert execution, design as it should be.
