Hi, I'm Rick Messer. I have around 15 years of experience designing for start-ups, enterprise software businesses and agencies. Working in different types of companies gives me a unique perspective. At every opportunity, I apply what I've learned and keep adding to it.
Just a little bit about me; I'm a friendly person who likes talking about music, cooking, or your latest streaming-binge. I'm passionate about my opinions, but I really enjoy hearing different perspectives that challenge my assumptions and learning from others.
Anyway, have a great day :-D
I’m a designer with over 15 years of professional experience. I started designing logos, merch and websites for bands while in high-school. Eventually I evolved that into a design business.
I’ve led small and large design teams. I find the best way to overcome challenges is to get started and to be fluid. What lies ahead, will challenge any assumptions.
Each year products and their users become more nuanced and sophisticated. This constant fluctuation means we designers must always be adjusting our approach. A solution that works is out there but it's usually not the first idea. Several layers of iteration and learning are between us and the solution. So let's get started!
