G'day, I'm Corey.
I'm an Aussie designer who codes.
I enjoy iterative design exploration, problem solving, and collaboration.
I’m particularly interested in bridging the gap between design and development. Making design simple and consumable, especially for folks without design backgrounds, with practical steps for it to be valued and invested in as part of practice is a passion of mine.
By day, I’m the Lead Designer at a SaaS product company, appbot.co. In my spare time, I’m building progressive enhancements on personal projects which I’ve built for the design and tech community; systemuicons.com and whocanuse.com and creating niche products for developer tooling such as featureboard.app.
