Devon grew up surrounded by lush forests and endless beaches on the largest of the Hawaiian islands. As a child, he loved to play videos games, draw, and explore mist laden mountains.
Eventually he moved to the Bay Area to pursue and education in animation and visual effects and soon after found himself his first job as a UI/UX Designer. Bringing along his animation toolkit, Devon started to see how animation could be used to aid in user experience. He's been working in both UI and Illustrative forms of motion design ever since.
With each project, he strives to bring a new perspective, using animation to inform decisions and design rationale. He believes that motion should have a purpose, so if it moves, there must be a reason for it.
