Dangerous Pixels is the banner for all professional work for freelance UI/UX & Product Designer: David Kennedy.
As the son of an artist and an IT expert, I’ve always had a passion for both art & technology.
Starting off with a degree in Computer Science and working successfully as an engineer for a number of years, it wasn’t long before my creative side eventually took over and the transition into design was made.
When the iPhone & App Store launched, it was the perfect opportunity to blend both passions and my focus turned to designing Apps & Games. This path eventually led to me working as a product designer for Apple on the App Store and gaming services such as Game Center and Apple Arcade.
Over the course of my design career, I’ve gained a wide variety of experience from freelancing to running an app design consultancy, design leadership, working for startups, small, medium and large businesses, crafting & launching my own digital products as an entrepreneur and working in Silicon Valley.
I have a strong passion for design, craft, quality and a deep understanding of technology. I have a balanced tension between creativity and process, an eye for detail, a calm, humble, diplomatic & collaborative approach and a strong will to push the creative arts & technology forward in innovative ways.
Outside of work, I love to play video games, surf, grab a beer, lift weights, watch basketball and keep learning. Most recently I've been diving deeper into graphics and game design with Blender 3D and Unity 3D.
The name Dangerous Pixels is combination of my nickname growing up "Dangerous Dave" and my love of digital - the "pixels", and so the perfect name for my professional work was born.
If you have a project in mind that you would like to collaborate on, I'd love to hear about it!
