Hi,

My name is Chris Ginn and I am currently working full-time as a UX Web Designer on an agile team using scrum. I am always looking for opportunities to expand my experience as a user experience professional. I have a background in graphic design but have been working as a web designer for the last 10+ years. I have a passion for using design as a way to navigate and communicate complex ideas and concepts.

While most of my work as been focused with online experiences, I have also helped small businesses with their branding, email marketing, and printed materials. Please feel free to reach out about your own design and user experience needs.
