About Me

Hello! I'm Luther.

I am a UX/UI designer as well as a web site and email designer & developer. In the UX realm I specialize in competitive analysis, stakeholder interviews, strategic research, user persona creation and other aspects where required or needed. For the UI aspect I am skilled in wireframing, prototyping, interactive design, design iteration, design sprints, asset hand-off and version control with Git and/or Abstract. For front end web design and development I work both within WordPress and Bootstrap, either designing a custom site or using your PSD, Sketch file or theme to bring your project to life. All email design and development is of course responsive and I have many ESPs under my belt, most extensively Oracle Responsys and Salesforce Marketing Cloud.

Past clients have included Nike, Asics, Teva, UGG, Hoka One One, Ahnu, Sanuk, Tracfone, SIMPLE Mobile, Snow Summit, Big Bear Mountain, Mammoth Mountain and many Portland-area businesses.

My Services


Competitive analysis, stakeholder interviews, strategic research, user persona creation, wireframing, prototyping, design iteration, interactive design, asset hand-offs, design sprints and version control with Git and Abstract.


I have built numerous web sites based on the WordPress platform as well as on the Bootstrap framework using HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery. I can design a custom site or use your design files (Sketch or PSD) and code it up to bring it to life.


I have coded literally hundreds of responsive email templates over the years, whether from custom designs or from PSDs handed off to me. I have experience with several ESPs, including Salesforce Marketing Cloud and Oracle Responsys.
