I'm David Putney. This is my site

David M. Putney mugshot

I’m David Putney. My day job is a UI/UX designer in the Boston-area. Before that, I spent about 20 years in newspapers in the U.S. and overseas.

I’m now a senior designer at a digital design and development agency here in Boston. I do UX/UI and visual design, UX testing, sprints, agile, – all that stuff for clients both large and small. I love to build as well as design, and as such I am proficient in HTML, CSS and JavaScript and some React.

Before all this, I mainly worked as a print designer and editor. I was co-founder of a popular, award-winning, yet, tragically doomed daily newspaper. After that I designed and built websites for a large, Boston-area media company.

This site is my own development work, so I take both blame and praise for it. Through the years I’ve built more than a few versions of the Davidputney.com. This is probably the sixth or seventh since 1999. I call this the “circa 2014” version.

If you actually feel like rooting around in my source code, or even running your own guerrilla version of Davidputney.com, head over to Github and git clone to your heart’s content.

For the font geeks out there, the script front in the header is Lavenderia, the serif headline font is Ginger and the body copy is set in Droid serif.

This site contains a blog. I write here about various topics of interest to me. Any views expressed here are my own and not of my employer, both current or former.
