My name is Dale DeVries and I am a website designer for Stellar Blue Technologies.
My path to becoming a designer has been a long and winding road. After graduating from UW Oshkosh with a degree in fine arts, I served for two years in AmeriCorps and managed new members for my third year. After that, I worked with non-profit organizations. While doing that, I started learning design. Soon after leaving the nonprofit world I became the lead designer for a monthly publication. I learned the ins and outs of Illustrator, Indesign and print objectives. I then started working for a web development firm, where I was a website designer. I really gravitated towards learning UI/UX and started teaching myself a little bit of coding.
I am really excited to be a part of Stellar Blue and I love that I am able to bring my passion for design and my love of community engagement together to make stunning websites for community organizations and businesses. I am excited to showcase great design with an award winning team.
In my spare time, I am a Dad to two amazing kids, a husband to a great wife, in a couple bands, and am a gigantic nerd. I love board and video games and draw when I can.
