WHAT I DO
I like both the technical and creative, and love where they intersect. As I explore that intersection via programming and art, I’ll be writing about it here.
Some of my
Creative Island Visions Website/Blog
This project was a complete Wordpress blog migration, and total website redesign for Creative Island Visions Photography.
Built responsive site for Fabiani's restaurant using the Squarespace system to allow for client maintenance.
Product display images Photoshopped from a mixture of vendor and stock photography for Groupon.com.
Groupon Editorial Apps
While working for Groupon, I built a series of internal web applications to track productivity, collect content and display data.
I’m Jesse Lee, a designer/developer based in Hawaii. After earning my bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies at The University of Illinois I turned my attention from designing buildings to designing for the web while working in Groupon’s Image Design department. There I honed my design sensibilities while diving into the world of web-development. In 2013 I moved to Maui, where I get to code, design and shoot photos for a living.
When not geeking out about design, I like to stay active, playing ultimate frisbee, surfing (board or body), hiking or riding my bike. I also love reading, music, podcasts and comedy (sketch/improv/standup). I’m a rabid fan of The Onion, and owe my career to it inspiring me to learn Photoshop. One of my life goals is to build my own Earthship house (after college I spent a summer in Taos, NM with Earthship Biotecture building houses out of dirt, car tires and beer bottles).
Recently, I’ve started trying my hand and WordPress plugin development, and physical/digital art using Arduinos. If you’re interested in talking about any of this drop me a line!
