About

Hi there, my name is Darren Kirk and I’m from Sydney, Australia. Ive been a digital designer for over 15 years. Through my career Ive tried to ‘wear as many hats as I can’. This mind set has allowed me to dip my hands in a large variety of projects.

At the moment, I must admit, I’m very excited about UX within the mobile space. The process that goes behind how an app works and the design patterns ones should use to create the simplest and easiest way to get where you need to be is fascinating.

Prototyping tools such as Axure, Sketch and Marvel make this process very exciting and I’m looking forward to delving even deeper into this world.

Audio

As a child I was very musical. I completed my teachers in piano and jazz sax whilst I was still in school but once I finished my studies I left music for my love of graphic art. It was many years later when I started creating animations for projects that I began dabbling in sound design. I completed an audio engineering course on Ableton Live and quickly set up my home studio.

Since then I have created a number of tracks for animations,videos and games and am an active member of the Envato Market site ‘Audio Jungle’

Nerd Alert

So yes, I’m a nerd. But really, show me a digital designer who isn’t! Ive always had a huge love for action hero’s and comic books but more recently of comic sculptors and designer toys. Ive collected pieces from all around the globe.

Photography

I believe most designers have a love for good photography and I’m really no exception. As an artist we use photography in so much of our work. I regularly contribute my photos to Getty’s iStock. Here are just a few examples.
