My name is Christopher Cosner. I’m a creative person trying to make it in the world of information technology. I get a lot of satisfaction out of making useful things for people. The best part is using creativity and good design to turn the ideas into something real.
Creativity has always come easy for me. It’s just how I think. Design is something that I’ve had to dedicate a good part of my career to. Learning how to ask the right questions to extract the answer to help hone in on the problem we are trying to solve or reworking and rewording a part of a project until it sends the right message is challenging and deeply rewarding. Some folks I’ve worked with think I’m a bit of a perfectionist (probably true) but I like to think of myself as a systemist — where finding the right function and interworking of things and making them come together is the key to achieving the best results.
I built my first professional website in 2008. Since then I’ve worked as a designer and web developer building probably a hundred websites and creating many brands and logos. My multidisciplinary career has given me the opportunity to work with people in the fields of government, higher education, and a lot of different small businesses. I love learning about new businesses and industries.
This website is my portfolio. It’s both professional and personal. It’s a combination of exhibition and memoire. I show off my work that I think displays exceptional examples of my abilities and I share my thoughts here and there about some of my learning experiences that I found particularly interesting or useful.
