Designer @ UserVoice.
Location: San Francisco, CA
Hi, my name’s Chad Bercea, and before I could speak I learned to draw. When the Norse Gods gave me the Internet, I learned to code. Now I live and work in San Francisco, CA, focusing on print design, UI/UX, CSS3, even motion graphics. I also frequently hack on Node.js with friends. I’m extremely passionate about my work, but when I’m not shipping code or pixels, I read comic books, volunteer my time to a nonprofit cafe, play the drums, program beats, and enjoy making people laugh with my ridiculous use of the english language. You can find me on Twitter
Front End Designer
I work on the design team building tools and designing our dashboard to help customers control their mobile app content. Everything from UX, wireframes & IA to high fidelity mockups & prototypes, to coding the front end and pushing up the code to let our amazing dev team make it happen. I get to work right in the middle: 50% design, 50% code. Being on the product team lets me float around to various projects. And I love it.
Brought on to do what I do. So far I've worked on marketing collateral, print projects, web sites, landing pages and product settings and UI/UX.
Product: I got to help the team plan and execute key changes to our settings UI/UX as well as roll out new product features for our web interface.
Web: Over the past year I've worked with many people from other companies, and everyone internally, to build websites and landing pages for conferences we've thrown, custom designs as per our offerings, user interface prototypes and wireframes to name a few.
