Get to know Craig

Tell us about a project or accomplishments from the past 10 years that had a major impact on your life or career.
Probably the biggest impact would be the idea that I can teach myself anything.

What is your favorite color, and why?
#3d3d3d, I just like the smooth tar-like presence it has.

What keeps you going when you’re focused on a project? Is there a particular saying or song that gets you moving?
“Suns out Buns out.” Really just encapsulates what it means to enjoy life.

What design or career advice would you give to your younger self?
Read more than just programming books.

If you were given the opportunity to see into the future, what would you want to know?
How it ends.

How do you think design impacts your everyday life? The community?
It’s a pervasive thing; it dictates nearly every physical action and mental thought.

If you hadn’t ended up in the career you are in, what do you think you’d be doing?
I’d probably be in working in animation / illustration.

See Craig on the panel “Design Systems for SaaS Products” on Saturday, October 12 at the PHXDW Evolve Design Conference.
