I AM JOE BARBER

I BUILD THINGS FOR HUMANS

MOSTLY ON SCREENS

That's kind of vague though.

I’m a designer. I enjoy making things that people use. Primarily by crafting experiences for web and mobile applications. But I also enjoy things like 3D modeling, product design, and general problem solving.

WORK

Awesomely enough, this project landed me a trip to San Francisco to talk with GoPro's UX team.
