Welcome to my portfolio website that I joyfully built from scratch upon a solid foundation of years of web design practice. My name is Raymond Stone and I am a user interface and user experience designer in California.
I was a self-taught graphic designer of three years with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Practice before transitioning into UI/UX. As a hobby I stay up-to-date with web, mobile, and tablet design standards in order to maintain a technical understanding of front-end UI/UX design.
In addition to art, I also have academic backgrounds in both math and psychology. Backgrounds in math, psychology, and art are essential because effective user experience design requires analysis, empathy, and creativity.
“You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backward to the technology. You can’t start with the technology and try to figure out where you’re going to try to sell it.”
- Steve Jobs at 1997 Apple WWDC
