About Russell Lehman - The long story

WEB UI/UX, CODING AND

DEVELOPMENT

For the last 15 years I have enjoyed working with a wide range of clients and wonderfully talented teams designing websites, web applications, and improving user experiences. You can say my obsession is front end web development, creative problem solving, and jumping at every chance to make the web a better place. At Charter Spectrum I helped design, develop and/or maintain more than 20 websites and web applications serving 25 million customers in 41 states. During my years at Bookspan/Direct Brands in NYC, I produced thousands of online promotions while helping to maintain 40 plus websites servicing more than 8 million members.

My development solutions include HTML5, AngularJS, PHP, Bootstrap, CSS3, SASS, SCSS, JavaScript, jQuery, JSON, AJAX, XML, MySQL. I have experience with Git, Gulp, SourceTree, FTP, various Linters, IDEs, and 3D-Cart among others. The last few years have been more focused on adaptive technologies, user interface (UI), user experience (UX), web applications, responsive design, mobile design, responsive content-images-videos, and designing for touch and gestures.

In my career I have been involved front end web development from concept, wire frames, comps, high resolution presentations, prototypes, development, QA testing, evaluating user tests, building test cases, deployment to multiple environments (dev, QA, stage, prod). I have created numerous online sweepstakes, sliders, carousels, galleries, portals, timeouts, event based interactions, filters, custom filters and ordering functionality, front end and back end form validation, and more. My non-design web experience includes response analysis, evaluating heat maps, A/B testing, SEO, web accessibility training with the American Foundation for the Blind as well as WCAG, CPNI Compliance training for financial transactions, PCI DSS Compliance Training, and HIPAA Compliance Training. I also have extensive CMS experience with multiple platforms including Adobe Experience Manager AEM, WordPress, Blogger, Drupal, Ektron, and OpenText.

Print, Illustration AND

CREATIVE DESIGN

Since beginning as a illustration major with a graphic design minor from School Of Visual Arts In NYC, I worked my way up to a creative director position completing many thousands of successful design projects and illustrations for hundreds of clients. From HBO, to Hallmark, to Lucas Arts, to Target I have experience working in just about every area of the design field. Working for many years as a Creative Director and Senior art director, I have produced a large portfolio of print ads, direct mail, catalogs, brochures, magazines, sell sheets, data sheets, spec sheets, folders, press kits, posters, magazine covers, banners, displays, billboards, point of purchase displays, packaging, manuals, and logos. My passion for creative problem solving aids my ability to easily provide a large amount of different ideas and concepts for my given projects when needed.

With regards to the business side of advertising, my experience includes A/B testing, response analysis, statistical analysis, focus groups, photo shoot direction and supervision, talent and stylist selection, ad and product copywriting, project management, radio spots, video, commercials, infomercials, ad placement, campaigns, corporate identity, branding, product placement, product development, vendor selection and management, creative team management, trade show booth design and construction, billing, estimating and budgeting. My print experience includes printing and delivery, file set up, print projects from 2 color to 8 color, print run supervision, spot colors, spot varnishes and textures, raised and dimensional printing, custom shaped and folded packaging design, and die cut designs.

Being a classically trained illustrator has helped me become a digital image retouching expert as I taught high end photoshop skills to many industry professionals along the way. My full set of illustration skills go on to include, digital illustration, article illustration, children's book illustration, book cover illustration, icon graphics, 3D illustration, 3D modeling, painting, drawing, acrylics, markers, murals, comps, sketches, and line art.
