Product design, industrial design, and print design at scale.
Product development at scale
Framework-based frontend development. Presentation layer code at scale should have a system.
Design focused entrepreneurship via mentoring, advising, angel funding and actually doing.
Steven was very helpful in providing advice for my latest project. He was very generous when offering insight and I highly recommend speaking with him if you have any questions about design. Looking forward to a future call with Steven.
Steven was really nice and out going. I would definitely encourage people to reach out to him for help and advice.
I don't know if it's that Steven only takes on big projects, or if his passion and vision just turns every project he's on into something amazing. Whether it's cranking all weekend on a hackathon project or leading a team on a major site redesign, he brings a relentless drive and passion to everything he works on that just infects the whole team. Steven also brings a razor sharp designer's eye and front-end development chops making him a true force to be reckoned with. It's been a pleasure working with Steven and I hope we continue to do so for a long time.
Steven is extraordinary. As a designer, he is talented and passionately devoted to clear, beautiful design. As a developer, Steven is devoted to fast, modern, and usable code. As a "product person", he is pragmatic and ruthlessly committed to success.
Steven transcends these roles. He is, ultimately, a person who can solve problems with either his own two hands, or those of his team.
I don't mind if you are designing a brand, building an app, or running a business--you need a Steven Walker.
