What is your story?

I am Kevin Horek, a Chief Design Officer, Technical UX/UI Designer, TV/Radio Host, and a published author by Packt Publishing on Zurb's responsive framework, Foundation 5. I studied web development and design at universities across North America, including UCLA and the University of Alberta. My Radio/TV/Podcast, Building The Future, was started to get over my fear of public speaking. I continue to push myself out of my comfort zone by blogging for AlphaGamma, TechZulu, and SOCAP. I also recently emceed SUP-X - The Start-Up Expo and had a live fireside chat on stage with the keynote speaker.  

For over 29 years, I have been working on web and mobile apps for some of the world’s most notable and well-respected organizations. Among them are BMW, Best Buy, Apple, Adobe, Sprint, Eastlink, TD Canada Trust, Qantas Airlines, Emirates Airlines, CB Richard Ellis, Microsoft, The Home Depot, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Singapore University of Technology, and Design, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Monsanto, Cargill, Sage Therapeutics, Goshen Health, PepsiCo, The United States Defense Threat Reduction Agency, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, The Air Force Civil Engineering Center, Abu Dhabi Health Services, Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture, and Janssen: Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, Cushman & Wakefield and Colliers International.

My design and development projects have won critical acclaim and were featured by media outlets like USA Today, Bloomberg, Fortune, Apple Insider & Hit Parader magazine.I continue to champion superior user experiences and maintain a relentless focus on achieving my goals in all of my ventures. I have been a contributor to the open-source community on FOLIO, and I co-host a monthly tech meetup in my hometown of Edmonton called Nerds Night Out.

What software tools & tech stacks do you work with?

I am a designer that can code my own designs & I can help implement those designs into the code with other front-end & backend developers.

Design / Creation / Prototyping Tools

I use the Adobe Creative Cloud: Photoshop - Illustrator - InDesign - XD - Premiere - After Effects - Audition, Figma, Sketch, ProtoPie, and Zeplin.

I use the JetBrains tools: PHPStorm - WebStorm, Android Studio, Xcode, VS Code, Git, and I themed and done some basic programming in the following languages: PHP, React, React Native, Flutter, Ruby on Rails, Django, Java, and ASP.net. I have built many sites in Wordpress and Drupal.

I have also been using , no-code development tools


To understand the best user experiences, you need to try all the platforms. I personally own an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Android phone, Macbook Pro, Windows PC, Chromebook, & Linux. I also sign up for as many free trials as I can to see how that product is designed.

Do you freelance and/or want to partner on a project or startup?
