About Me

Christy Presler

Hey, thanks for visiting my site.
I'm Christy Presler.

I specialize in designing and building enterprise level web applications. I love challenges and enjoy leveraging modularity to create designs and code that scales well.

I'm a user experience nerd, who likes reading about accessibility and user centered design. I'm equally passionate about design and technology, which means I'm just as happy to discuss typography and color theory as third-party API integrations, or the latest JavaScript framework. Collaborating with teams where I get to do both on a regular basis is great!

I love to learn. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Washington University in St. Louis, where I discovered my love of letterpress, typography, and effective design. After completing my degree this grew into a passion for well executed and creative design on the web. Designing for the web lead to learning to build my own designs. I found the resources I needed to learn to code, and discovered how awesome the creative problem solving process of development is. In my opinion, the best projects are the kind that challenge me to draw on new tools and combine them with a little, or a lot of, ingenuity to create a solution that solves a real problem.

I'm also an outdoor enthusiast, an Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker, an avid tea drinker, a book lover, and appreciator of pet rabbits. These days, when not at my computer working on a design or developing an application, I'm often found curled up with a book or working on a woodblock print.

If you have questions, or just want to say hello, feel free to contact me.
