I am Justin Larsen… The Vicious Robot, finely-tuned and precision-crafted art directional machine. Strategically utilized in award winning agencies and technology startups. Programmed at interactive design, planning, and execution. For maximum efficacy and efficiency. Self-learning autonomous operation. Base structure of digital interactive hexagridonal chops with matrices of traditional girders and mediums. Primary fuel source: carbohydrate-ethanol blend.
Designing and planning websites has always been a main feature of my passion and abilities. I am designed to make more than just pretty pictures, but concept design and iconic imagery.
Responsive design is always in the forefront of my mind, which is complete with iOS Objective-C Native Applications. Also Android capable (primarily in Java) with the addition of the ASE platform, a magnitude of other languages are supported.
A proper blueprint is always needed before starting any project. IA/UX is essential to keeping teams together and on focus so that projects get done on time, avoiding feature creep letting new ideas move to the next phase.
Who are you? What is your personality? Pretend your brand is someone you just met. You may not sell them something initially, but over time as they interact with you more, the bond builds a loyal consumer rather than one who just wants a deal.
I target markets, demographics and log long term data to meet long term goals for your business. Let the creative process take control of your target market (ie. we don't want male humor for a young mother product.) Watch trends and adjust accordingly when things fail.
As a hobbyist developer, my eye is always with the most current trends and technology developments platforms. I keep my designs within the scope to work within responsive environments and native application.
I've created national and global award-winning work at some of the largest agencies in the world, and offer my insight into what is needed to build a new brand within the startup world. I offer invaluable insight that compliment multi-million advertising and creative work.
I feature an advanced background in the real print process. This doesn't mean low budget digital prints, but true Pantone, letterpress, and/or offset printing on 220lb stock. Nothing says tacky more than a 90lb stock faded Vistaprint business card.
Whether it's an extensive resize of banner ads for various website specifications, printed mailers, things get interesting when ideas go beyond the traditional square.
