I'm Arvin— I work with companies and applications to better meet their user needs through user research, interaction and front-end development. If you're interested in a more real-time perspective, follow me on:

What I do

I take into consideration who your users are, where they're coming from and their intentions with your application. Piecing together the variety of use cases, the current scope of your application and it's key features— I'll map out a flow users can take when approaching your service or application.

This becomes the outline or framework for the look, feel and use of your application. Doing this well requires a deep understanding of your users, the problem you're trying to solve, the technology choices you're making, and having the ability to prototype quickly. Most of my work spans between discussions with your users, and building directly in the browser.

My toolbox


Middleman is a light Ruby based framework. I rely on Middleman to prototype quick front-end interactions that yield production ready code.


Bourbon is a SASS-based mixin library provided by the team at thoughbot. It's lighter weight than Compass, and provides great utility when combined with their grid framework- Neat.

Don't worry, I enjoy a normal glass of bourbon too. Preferably Buffalo Trace.

Dot Grid Journal

Don't underestimate paper. One of my favorite notebooks, I keep on me always from our friends at Behance. Works wonderfully when paired with a rOtring Mechanical Pencil.
