Vincent Purcell

UI/UX Engineer, Full Stack Designer

I'm passionate about technology and design. I specialize in the application of design and technology for social and environmental impact, and advocate for innovative uses of technology and digital fabrication.

I currently work as a designer and developer at emocha Mobile Health Inc. in Baltimore, MD where I work on a team to craft high-impact healthcare applications that are thoughtful, elegant, and delightful. I bridge the worlds of design and development, actively working as an interface designer, user researcher, media producer, and frontend developer.

My experience is broad. I'm a trained designer with a background in prograaming and interface development. Check out my work below, and contact me if you'd like to learn more.
