Andy has over fifteen years of experience creating award winning interactive products and media. He has worked with some of the largest brands in the world including the Smithsonian Institution, Samsung, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Wenner Media, Lego and Turner Broadcasting. He is currently an Executive Creative Director for Favorite Medium, a global design and technology agency with offices in Oakland, Seoul and Singapore. When Andy is not helping clients solve interesting problems, he loves speaking at conferences, teaching workshops and co-building Oaklean.com. Andy is also the co-author and co-designer of a book recently published by Rockport Press. Titled Interactive Design: An Introduction to the Theory and Application of User Centered Design, it’s available in six languages.
Jesse has spent ten years building web products for a growing community of clients. His education and professional history has included fine art, industrial design, graphic design and programming. Five years ago, he CoFounded Mister Machine where he served as Principal Designer. Most recently, Jesse joined the team Exygy, an agency dedicated to designing software for organizations focused on providing positive social impact. He's had the pleasure of working with early stage startups as well as New York University, Conde Nast and the Jim Henson Company. His job is to learn your language and to identify value of key user interactions. From block model to visual design, your application has personality. He draws that out and enhances the experience.
I've already taken several web design classes, but there were still some details that I found confusing. Andy and Jesse did a great job of explaining things like; programming languages and how they interact to form the structure of a site, work flow responsibilities between team members and the blurry lines between them; and agile methodologies applied to work flow. They used case studies to illustrate how this all happens, where variations crop up, and how to address them.
If you're new to web design, or just want to understand the functions of other team members, this is a great real world look at the whole process. I haven't found this in any other class, either on-line or local.
Andy and Jesse are both very experienced working designers with current knowledge. They're very responsive to questions and seem to really enjoy teaching. Having two instructors is a great benefit because you get double the perspective, knowledge, etc.
I worked with Andy when he was a Creative Director at Funny Garbage, a design studio in New York City. I found him to be knowledgeable, articulate, and lovely to work with. I learned so much from him at the beginning of my career.
In response to a previous comment: it seems silly to dismiss this class because Andy wears t-shirts with his blazers. If you think leaders only wear suits and ties, then maybe this class isn't for you. But if you want to learn from someone with loads of experience and a friendly manner, I really recommend it. You won’t be disappointed.
I was looking for a class that would not only address the web design basics but also their place and function as part of a workflow. This class did not disappoint and Andy's and Jesse's engaging presentation style made it easy for me to follow along during the 2-day live session. By using real life examples, the presenters provide plenty of tips and strategies how to best work with clients and developers alike — the many, often intangible ingredients that go beyond technical expertise and can make or break a project. Highly recommended.
