Who am I?My name is David Chan and I am a designer and developer living in Toronto.
ExperienceI currently work on the UX team for a major Canadian bank.
Previously, I was a designer and front-end developer for Sony Canada with their eCommerce team. Examples of my work and a breakdown of responsibilities can be found in this case study.
Before moving client-side, I worked in the advertising industry with clients including Ancestry.ca, The Heart and Stroke Foundation, LCBO, Microsoft, The Royal Society of Canada and Square One Shopping Center. I have experience with print production, art direction and developing marketing campaigns.
DesignI care deeply for typography and have a love for whitespace. I admire Dieter Rams and his "Less, but better" philosophy. I believe good design goes beyond aesthetics and should create better experiences.
DevelopmentMy focus is on clean, modular, front-end development (HTML, CSS, SASS). I also have experience with scripting languages (PHP, JS), frameworks (Bootstrap, Foundation), libraries (jQuery, Handlebars), APIs (Twitter, Instagram), content management systems (Adobe Experience Manager, eBay Commerce Platform, IBM WebSphere Commerce, WordPress) and version control systems (Interwoven, GitLab, GitHub).
