I'm Dana Harris—but I'm better known to some folks as LOTUSWARE. To put is simply, I make stuff for a living. Projects I'm involved with have me moving from creating art assets for a video game, streamlining a UI for a mobile app, an 80-foot mural for a rock band, to an alarm clock noise that you will come to loathe.
Form / Function
Its an important balance when in any project—how do you make sure the end product meets the needs of a client, while also trying to stand out from a sea of sameness? You have so many great ideas it becomes a challenge to narrow down that focus and deliver a result that blows the competition away. That's where I come in.
What I Do
The work I do can be split into three distinct pillars.
UX / UI Design
It Just Feels Right
Have you ever downloaded a great app, but it just feels clunky and confusing? Chances are it needs a fresh coat of clarity. The first step to fix this is by keeping the focus on client-centered design. You want a layout an design that just makes sense when you interact with it.
Branding / Identity
What You Represent
Keep your brand in check and keep your clients coming back. Its the reason why brand loyalty is a thing. How your products look and feel can speak volumes. Make sure your brand and your identity is working for you, and not against you.
Graphics / Sound
Hey, Look, Listen!
So your website has a good set of bones, but just needs to be prettied up? What about that new hack-and-slash demo you just released with the same enemy copy-pasted? Is your 15-second Youtube intro a little too quiet? I can jump into any project and take it to the next level with the audio/video assets you need.
