Visual communication leveraging the creative and technical.
Rocky Laber draws from a background of design and illustration, merged with over a decade of internet development. His experience in web design and coding dates back to 1994, transitioning from an environment primarily print-oriented to one that is web-oriented. The smooth transtition was due in part to the wealth of knowledge he acquired throughout the digital media explosion of the mid 1980s. In the ensuing years, when static, hand-coded sites were still prevalent, he began to experiment with a number of dynamic, database-driven, open source content management systems.
As a specialist in UI design and multimedia he has led and contributed to web-based and kiosk-based interactive multimedia projects for Fortune 500 tech companies including Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard, Sun Microsystems, NetGear, Levanta, NetApp, Applied Biosystems, Genentech, Hyperion, Citrix, and others.
His design work and digital illustrations have appeared in national and regional publications, white papers, brochures, and annual reports. He has served as an instructor, leading classes in Adobe Creative Suite digital design tools including Flash, Photoshop and Illustrator.
Mr. Laber studied illustration and fine art at CCAC, having taken part in one of their initial computer graphics offerings in 1982. Since completing his studies, he has worked exclusively in the creative field as production artist, design lead and art director.
