Hello!

My name is Destry Teeter. I am a front-end web designer/ tech enthusiast/ world traveler/ engaged challenger.

Strategy

The key to creating great brands, products and experience is due diligence. Concept development, research and planning are the foundations of any project and I pride myself in engaging with the customer to ensure their needs are met.

Design

Design comes through experimentation of line and technique. My background and knowledge of art and design gives me an edge in designing a beautiful aesthetics.

Action

Concept can get you only so far. I pride myself in implementing and producing products and design.

Prints

I am a strong believer in traditional art and using it as a foundation in design. The tangible and tactile elements of these arts allow me to look past the virtual screen and really understand the visual elements that make a design come to life.

Sculpture

Designing for the virtual world is often conceived as flat and depth is merely used to portray the navigational structure of a site. With a strong understanding of 3-dimensional design I bring a fresh approach to graphic and interactive design.

IA / UX design

When designing for user experience it's important to become deeply involved with the people you are designing for. Know them, become them. Find out how and why they do what they do and how you can predict the pattern of their styles.
