Senior Product Designer

David E. Sims

David is UI/UX designer who's passion is designing smart, clean and human-centered digital spaces.

Before his journey into UI/UX design, David spent 8 years using silence as his canvas to create masterpieces as a music producer. Working with a myriad of well-known artists such as Fabolous, L.E.P. and Red Cafe, he established himself as a niche producer known for his orchestral sound.

David made the leap into graphic design in 2009, where his innate talent and drive led him to graduate with a degree in visual communication, and ultimately found him transitioning into user interface design in 2012.

Now, with over 5 years of experience designing and problem solving for both the web and mobile applications, he currently makes his home at WJY Studios as senior product designer.
