Great User Experience Design

Hi, I'm Robert C. Bowman III

Since 2006 I have been working with companies large and small to create top notch products. I enhance world class brands by listening and producing intuitive user experiences. I'm an eccentric, high energy team member, a hopeful romantic in love with user journeys - equally comfortable creating wireframes as I am coding email newsletters, launching PPC campaigns or leading a team.

Work Experience

FOUNDER & WEB DESIGNER @ OPUSCULE
Queens, NY & Chicago, IL
2006 - Present

From 2006 to 2013 I ran Opuscule full time, helping small businesses get online and be found; compiling the best solutions for their brand, budget, needs and timeline. I've designed logos & wireframes, setup WordPress sites & email accounts, enhanced SEO presence and given hundreds of hours of tutorials.

Now I still do the same, but only in the evenings and weekends when I'm not "working for the man." Check out some very kind reviews on Yelp.

Who is Rob?

When I'm not thinking about or creating a better internet I can be found: faking it at the gym; getting tattoos; learning at the Brooklyn Brainery; geeking out over some podcast; re-watching "Arrested Development" or occasionally, trying my hand at open mic standup comedy!
