Independent graphic/interface/prototype artist and designer
Last active: 11/25/2013
My name is Kevin Tully. I am an about-to-graduate senior Psychology student at the University of Minnesota. I love people and learning about the things that make us act and think in the sometimes novel, sometimes frustrating, sometimes godawfully bizarre, ways we do. I wrote my senior thesis on how folks can effectively use goal setting to (in a nutshell) self-regulate themselves into happy, meaningful, intensely productive super-people. You can read it if you want! (or, better yet, let me implement my theories into your workflow.)
Alongside my love for human behavior is a deep-seeded passion for design and art. I love illustration. I love design. I have been using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator since I was a wee lad, but I've recently begun to teach myself the intricacies of interaction and web design. As a person who has been using modern-ish user interfaces since the age of 5, I've kindled quite a bit of latent understanding of what can make a website/interface/modern design look and feel wonderful, and what can make it feel clunky, look outdated, and generally suck. Working totally independently and teaching/re-teaching all of this stuff to myself has been an intensely rewarding and productive experience.
I am constantly seeking opportunities to implement my design skills on a professional level. If you need anything done, feel free to contact me. I am most interested in gaining experience in UX design, probably helping out on a team designing mockups and wireframes, performing user testing, doing creative brainstorming studios. However, I'd love to help you out and do some freelance graphic/logo/prototype design as well. If you want to send me any sample "prove yourself" assignments, I could do them and you could make the call on if you like my work and want to hire me or not.
Hope to hear from you soon! Let me know if you have any requests or questions for me!
I've put some of my work on this profile, but if you want to see much more of my art and design work, visit my personal Tumblr at http://kevintullyandallhisfriends.tumblr.com
