Design

Design is the forefront of any experience. This is where your brand is established before actually knowing anything about a product. Many designers are quick to sacrifice practicality for aesthetics, but there are many factors to consider. The experience should always come first, which means not allowing things like illegibility, unintuitive navigation, and overwhelming stimuli to hinder our audience from satisfying their needs.

Wheel Decide | Logo & Web Layout


I built the Wheel Decide brand to appear modern, fast, and fun.
