As you most likely know by now, my name is Devon Hicks and I’m a UX/UI Designer and Front End Engineer. What you may not know is that I’m currently on a mission to take over the universe with a combination of cookies and an annoying dedication to creating remarkable experiences. So give me a challenge, push my boundaries, I dare you.

Do no evil
Every project that I take on should only have a positive impact on the world. Whether it's a simple Wordpress conversion or a full blown application, let's not make the world any twisted than it already is.
Knowledge is power
The development world changes rapidly, and it's essential not to buy into the hype of trendy products while also leveraging the amazing advances made by the community. My approach brings together time tested tools and new frameworks for forward-looking products with stable foundations.
Always eat cookies
In my mind, a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie is the key to a succesful day. If you can consume a dozen in a single sitting, you're on your way to achieving big things in life.
Have a blast
Our time here is limited, and we should embrace every moment. I love hard work, but I also love hard work that involves copious amounts of fun. Lets get things done, but why not enjoy it?
Development is a a collaborative process, with many moving parts and decisions, many of them complex in nature. It's my goal to make that process better for my clients and their companies, to involve them in the process so that their voice is heard and they have a true understanding of how things work. Partnering with me for your project means gain someone who truly cares about your company and your goals. It's an adventure that results in new friendships, new lessons learned, and most importantly, remarkable products.

All Propane Mowers wanted to move away from their legacy CMS and better serve their mobile users so they partnered with me to transition the existing design to the Wordpress platform. I also facilitated the transfer of hundreds of pages of content and brought some design tweaks to the table.
Being behind the lens is a passion of mine, and I created Devonhicks.photography to showcase the importance I place on taking photos that tell a story.
Crossroads Rescue of Texas is an amazing group working to provide animals of every kind with a loving home in the central, TX area. They've housed everything from Giraffes to cats.
