About Nic Marson

I am an advocate for a unified web experience on all devices. I specialize in adaptive design for large websites, integrating User Experience data, and improving workplace efficiency.

My background

I began as an artist in my youth, putting to paper what I saw in the world and in my imagination. As I grew I developed an aptitude for math and science. After high school I went to Oregon State University to major in biology. Eventually I changed my major to graphic design where I found a perfect mix of my talents. In addition to the graphic design curriculum I also began learning web design.

My first web projects took place at Oregon State back in 2001, but I wouldn't get back into the web business again until 2004 as a web master at InFocus. During this off time I was teaching myself to hand code HTML and CSS and discovered A List Apart and related sites to guide me. Years later I would attend An Event Apart and by putting new skills to use with some great agencies.
