Texter Design
I am Kurt Texter, an artist and designer living in San Francisco. My work includes graphic design for both print and digital media, web and user interface design, user experience, service design, strategy, and research-based methodologies. At the moment I’m looking for a full-time position and freelance projects.

Collaboration, honesty, and supporting others in the workplace are core values I hold. I’m seeking to be part of an active, passionate team to work on any number of problems. I enjoy creating organized design systems, research, and adding visual utility whenever possible. I’ve had the pleasure of working with design teams for clients such as Adobe, ICON Aircraft, Microsoft, NYAS, and Sonos.

In addition to my love for video games, the outdoors, and expanding my cooking prowess, I am always looking to discuss new projects and opportunities. Please contact me via texterdesign@gmail.com. Thank you.

The New York Academy of Sciences

The complete redesign of the nyas.org website. It was my responsibility to take a new branding system and echo that language across the desktop and mobile space. I created the initial web design guidelines so teams could collaborate on different pages simultaneously, allowing faster revisions and decision making. A new internal system was established to easily hand off design assets, letting my collaborators easily pick up where another finished as the final designs were tested and shipped.

Room to Read

In an effort to focus on increasing funding and online engagement, the non-profit Room to Read sought to redesign their website space across desktop and mobile. A responsive website was built to drive donations while providing detailed information regarding the organization’s impact everywhere they’re currently involved. Visitors are shown how supporting literacy and gender equality in education can drive the development of low-income communities, with geographically specific use cases and testimonies from the people who provide support on the ground.
