Aloha! My name is Blake Alan Hixson. I am currently employed as a Front End Web Developer and User Interface/User Experience Designer at the University of Hawai’i’s Information Technology Department, with four years of development experience in a team oriented environment. In college, I majored in Art with a specificity in Graphic Design and my passion is bridging the gap between art and technology. I enjoy working in a technology oriented environment and am continuously trying to learn more about emerging technologies.Some of my current responsibilities include creating web related graphics, print work, HTML mock-up pages, conceptual interface design, and flow-chart development. It is also my responsibility to present and communicate design decisions to Web Engineers. I am well versed in HTML and CSS languages, with decent exposure to JavaScript and JQuery. I have an understanding of typography, gestalt, grid-based design, and the most recent graphic design software and programs, such as Adobe In-design, Photoshop and Illustrator. I continuously work closely with a development team to produce web applications and user interfaces to ship/deploy functional and aesthetically pleasing products used by the University System.
