Sophie and Kevin reveal Happy Cog’s design process through their experience building a responsive site from beginning to end, including: kicking off the project, the collaborative design process, and the tools they tweaked along the way. Find out what worked and what they learned. In the end, it should be clear that this is a time for experimentation and finding new approaches for new tasks.

After graduating from NYU Film School and then working in digital book publishing for two years, Sophie Shepherd realized that what she really wanted to do was to design websites. She freelanced for two years before becoming a full time designer with Happy Cog, honing her skills working with clients such as Texas Monthly, the Texas Department of Transportation, and National Geographic. Her love of beautiful design is only overshadowed by her passion for websites that are simple, easily navigable, and full of necessary, applicable content. When not in front of a screen, Sophie enjoys cooking, reading, road trips, and camping. She is passionate about craft and import beer, and can talk about it for a very long time.

Kevin Sharon is a web designer with over 10 years experience designing innovative, engaging, and usable web experiences. His expertise lies in: creative direction, strategy, user experience, graphic design, animation, and film. Prior to joining Happy Cog, Kevin spent two years designing and developing sites for higher education, financial service, healthcare, and entertainment industries at Razorfish. Kevin has been an adjunct professor at Philadelphia University’s School of Design and Media. He has taught courses to Digital and Graphic Design undergraduate and graduate students in design for the web as well as motion graphics and video. In his free time, Kevin enjoys spending time with his family, eating, soccer (playing and watching), music, and reading—in that order. Next time you see him, be sure to ask about the time he was in Iceland, sharing a hot tub with Björk.
