My name is Andy Eveland and I am a freelance designer working in Southern California. I was previously the Creative Director for TapIt! Mobile Advertising! TapIt! was a startup founded in January of 2011. I joined the team in November of the same year and one year later we were acquired by Phunware. Read how we turned 350K into a whopping 27 Million on TechCrunch.

Andy is an impressive and well rounded designer. I worked with him when he did some graphics work for an Apple event and was impressed by his ability to take a concept and make it better again and again. A true professional and easy going guy. I couldn’t possibly recommend him enough.
Creative Director - SGE Worldwide
Andy consistently proves himself to be a valuable asset to the team. Whether it’s coming up with a creative solution to a problem, brain-storming on potential new marketing ideas, or simply designing something solid and professional looking, you can always count on him.

I've worked with Andy and I have yet to find an artist who matches his talents. Both in graphic design and web layouts. He was ahead of his time then and from what I can see he's continuing to do great things.
… try to absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, and add what is essentially your own.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with many great companies and clients throughout the course of my career and have learned a lot of cool stuff along the way. I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to anything technology related, and a kid at heart when it comes to Legos.
I started creating content for GraphicRiver to lighten designer and developer workload, and to make the web a more attractive place (and let's be honest, to make a little money, too).
I hope you find my designs to be both visually appealing and functional. Please hit me up if you are happy with an item or if you have an idea for an awesome new item you want me to create.
When I'm not working I enjoy reading dystopian stories, discovering new music, and spending time with my wife and kids traveling and trying new restaurants. I also fill my free time working with GraphicRiver, Bit Rebels,The League Of Moveable Type, PremiumPSD and I also volunteer as a Soccer Referee for AYSO.
Successful creative endeavors require that designers possess strong collaborative skills, a keen eye for rising advertising and a solid technical expertise - qualifications that I’ve developed throughout my career.
Everyone knows a great brand. One that creates an emotional relationship with you. One that earns a sense of trust, familiarity, reliability and consistency. It doesn’t happen by accident. It happens because someone did their homework. It’s about matching traits with needs, persona with attitude, and results with expectations. I think a great brand is the reflection of great research and, of course, great design.
User interface design is the design of computer software applications and websites with the focus on the user's experience and interaction. My goal as a user interface designer is to make the user's interaction as simple and efficient as possible. Good user interface design facilitates finishing the task at hand without drawing unnecessary attention to itself.
When it comes to advertising and design, I belive it's important to follow one simple rule – imagine being the audience. If you get that right, all the rest falls into place. So many times, great creative is over-complicated with too much content, and competing messages. I believe in understanding your audience and designing in a way that motivates them.
