RICHARD GAFFIELD, 8800 SE Causey Loop, Apt M302, Portland, OR  97086 – (347) 525-3378 – richard@cyberpagedd.com

Primary interest is Information Architect, UI/UX Design, Web Design, Branding
Over the past 15 years I’ve delivered UI design, branding graphics, online marketing, mock-ups, user-flows, wire-frames, front-end development, prototyping, etc. I am effective in collaborating with interaction designers, software developers, business analysts and other IT professionals. Showing range as a visual designer, I’ve served clients in various industries: government, higher education, small business, health, communication, direct sales and financial.

My designs shoot for usability, polish and functionality. A true believer in ultra clean and functional design, I prefer minimalism whenever possible, not so focused on being less as being crystal clear, a joy to look at and uniformly easy to use. Understanding technical considerations, I think systematically about creating modular design systems that can be applied to a content management system (CMS), while satisfying stated business requirements.
