Artist and writer / UX Designer

Arcy Douglass is an artist and writer based in Portland, OR. His work is based on the intense exploration of the generation of the maximum amount of complexity with the simplest forms. These forms often include standard shapes like arcs, squares or triangles that result in traditional drawings and paintings but also time based work like self generative animations. His research has led him to organize a symposium with Peter Ballantine on issues relating to the fabrication of the work of Donald Judd at the University of Oregon in April 2010. He is currently working on research with the National Gallery of Art about some of Mark Rothko's early watercolors that were painted in Portland and the Columbia River Gorge.

My background in design makes me a better coder!

My experience spans the worlds of design, project management and software development. I am currently working as a designer and coder at a company producing decision-support software for military and other analysts. I am part of a small team working on very complex Angular 1.5 projects. As part of my role on the team, I am exposed to a wide variety of technologies, including frontend testing in Selenium, with design patterns in Angular, structuring data in JSON, and even a little bit of Scala. For UX, I regularly leverage libraries such as Material Design and Bootstrap 3.0, as well as custom CSS, to create visual solutions for a web app.
