Jetpack Team Lead at Automattic

Dustin is a tremendously solid designer, with a keen eye for balance, colors, and matching an existing brand — but is also excellent at creating new branding ensembles.

He is very much a top designer. Very deep in UI and UX design, and comfortable enough with other aspects such as front end development, HTML5, CSS3, implementing JS libraries and some minor custom code, and WordPress theming.

I can heartily recommend him as the designer lead on either a client or product focused team.

I’ve known Dustin since 2013. Our shared interests in design and front end development lead us to attending various WordCamps and design conferences. Dustin has the unique ability to educate others on the value of good design. I’ve always enjoyed hearing him talk with people outside of the creative industry to show why good design matters, coupled with best practices with web technologies. Dustin sees design and technology as a way to help others. As a designer and front end developer, his level of ability and comfort with experimentation is fantastic. I know the clients he has worked with are very happy with his commitment to craft and how that commitment serves them. He’s a very engaged in the design & development community in our region and further out. I am very glad to count him as trusted friend and colleague.

If you have the chance to meet and talk with Dustin, capitalize on it. As a colleague, he’s a great advocate for quality. As a prospective employer, He’s equally strong in working with a team as he is leading a team.
