Welcome Damien, the newest member of PUBLIQ’s Enterprise Development team. He joined the team remotely in June as a senior UI/UX designer. Originally from North Canton, OH, Damien graduated from the University of Akron with his B.A. in Studio Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design and a minor in Digital Imaging. Having previous experience with government software, Damien said he wanted to join PUBLIQ because there is a great demand for easy-to-use, high-performing software in the public sector and he truly believes in our solutions.
Damien’s goal is to make our applications visually appealing and intuitive. His process starts by meeting with his core team to brainstorm efficient ways to enhance our products and improve the user experience. From there, he creates visual mock-ups of application screens, which go through design reviews. Once designs are approved, they are made into interactive prototypes, which are tested by our customers for workflow capabilities. Based on testing feedback, further refinements are made, and when the team is happy with the final designs, the Development team codes them into the software. Damien assists the team by styling the coding and ensuring it aligns with his initial vision.
In his free time, Damien enjoys creating music, including electronic and hip hop. He even plays guitar, bass, and keyboard! He also likes cars and motorcycles and has his own YouTube channel where he restores old tools and machines. He has three cats named Kai, Belle, and Monster.
“I’m very happy to be working with such a great group of people! I’ve received a very warm welcome from the PUBLIQ team, and I look forward to many years of collaboration in delivering software solutions that address our users’ needs and hopefully make their workday a little easier,” he said.
