web designer and graphic artist

Hello, I’m Huy “Wee” Tran, Interactive Designer & Developer from Los Angeles, CA. For the past 7 years, I’ve been designing in the industry with top Agencies and Web Development firms. I help companies define their vision to share with the world.

I started out in the industry working for small clients and through hard work, I then moved on to work for large corporations. I enjoy making an impact at a company and seeing the returns from the handwork that we put in as a team.

With any fast pace industry, staying ahead is the only option. I constantly keep up with industry standards and the latest trends in design and technology. I recently started coding most of my projects in HTML5 / CSS3 along with utilizing JQuery Plugins for more interactive experiences and preparing for the future of mobile technology.

I’m currently the Lead Interactive Designer & Developer at Forever21. I just recently Designed and Developed their Desktop and Mobile website. I’m also looking to pick up some side projects so please contact me if you would be interested in working together. Huy@Beyondtheblur.com
