For me, working with Tim on building a complex SaaS RIA, I found it a pleasure to work with a creative that understood and embraced the capabilities of the modern web. Tim brought a taste of classic and powerful design like that of Edmund Arnold and Paul Rand to modern web design resulting in finely polished sleek UX that was not only beautiful, but easy to use and intuitive for even the most basic of users.
