Front End Designer
About Blaze Barsamian
Two weeks ago the engineers were given a challenge to write a method that cut off a block of text leaving an excerpt trailed by an ellipsis. As soon as the engineers were given the challenge question, I began to scribble down the front-end version.
As I sit back and reflect on the past year, I realize just how much growth I’ve experienced. Prior to Revelry, I was working primarily in web. I was confident in my work and thought I knew it all when it came to HTML and CSS. Boy was I wrong!
Upon first starting to work at Revelry, Gerard told me, “Eventually we’ll have you designing in the browser and you won’t need to mock everything up in Illustrator, Photoshop or Sketch.” To be quite honest, this terrified the living you know what out of me…
About a year ago I made the switch from mocking up my designs in Photoshop to using Illustrator instead. After listening to UI designer Jeremy Miller of Radolo talk on this topic, I walked away with one thing: “Learn to Love Illustrator.” And that I did.
