I’m Jacob — a designer and coder who creates things with computers (Fig 1) ‘Digital Craftsman’ best describes my skill set.

Digital projects thrive when designers understand how they will be built. Just as an architect understands how a structure is created, the same should be true on the web.

I like this portfolio/profile page – Jacob does a great job articulating the unconventional position of being somewhere between the worlds of design and development. For a while my LinkedIn bio has read Digital Designer-Builder, but Digital Craftsman conveys the same idea. Maybe I’m just not ready to assume the label of “craftsman” for myself. I consider it instead a perpetual aspiration.
