Design + Code

Carrie Carter

I’m a designer that codes. I got my start in art school studying sculpture and a few years later, industrial design. I have had jobs in office administration, marketing, social media management, and full-cycle recruiting for clients like eBay and Nike. As soon as I saw a path for myself as a designer/developer I made the leap to self-employment and began working with small businesses providing brand identity design, website design, development and e-commerce solutions. Life took a turn and I got the chance to deepen my technical ability at Alchemy Code Lab. Now I’m a stronger front-end developer familiar with full-stack JavaScript that isn’t ready to let go of my design habit.

Currently Seeking

A software or web development role

I’d love to contribute to and learn from a team working on UX/UI engineering or data-driven front-end web projects.

A hybrid developer/designer role

Do you need someone to handle a variety of graphic design, web design, and development tasks? My marketing skills paired with my ability to execute across print, web, and social make me a versatile asset to your team.

Project-based work

I  can provide a variety of design, development, and e-commerce services. If you think I can help, let’s talk!

My Work

I’m a developer driven by design principles.

I take a user-centered approach to my work and do my best to solve challenges with simplicity using whatever tools are best suited for the task at hand. 

My Toolbox

My Heart

I believe the health of our planet is one of the biggest challenges we face in our lifetime. As someone that is made whole by spending time in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, I want to use my skills to promote love and respect for the wild places in this world. Let’s support the work being done to preserve and protect them.
