Joshua Currier

I’m a UX designer, full-stack developer, and creative problem solver in WNY. I have a passion for bringing ideas to life; both from behind a screen and in the real world.

UX/UI/Design

Great design serves a purpose. It makes content accessible and guides users to complete tasks while keeping with the established brand. I prefer clean, concise design that provides a professional look and maximum usability while meeting the needs of any given project.

Web Development

Proficient in more acronyms than you can shake a stick at (PHP, RoR, MySQL, HTML5, JS, CSS, etc), I'm able to deliver anything from basic brochure-ware websites & WordPress development to advanced ecommerce platform integration and custom web based applications.

Employee benefits and insurance options can be confusing. Information is ever-changing, hard to track down, and often scattered across endless random documents. PERKY provides decision support to lighten that load. We deliver context, explanation, and personalized recommendations that empower employees to take control of their benefits.

Currently, I’m the Head of User Experience at PERKY. Most of my time is spent crafting, refining, and executing the front end experiences for our suite of tools, but my position within the team affords me the opportunity to contribute at many levels. I’m regularly involved in project planning, backend development, marketing, and messaging. I also led the visual efforts for our award-winning rebrand.

What started as an unhealthy love of the Buffalo Bills turned into a passion project designing and selling apparel that pays homage to Buffalo and our beloved sports teams. It’s all I wear now. Seriously. My wife probably hates it.

I’ve been fortunate enough to release designs with a few players, donate a bunch of money to local charities from special campaigns, and work with/meet some really great folks along the way. Its true when they say that Bills Mafia is like family.

I still freelance occasionally through my other business, NeonThoughts. Focusing locally, I’ve been afforded the opportunity to work with companies both small and large, directly and indirectly through agency subcontracts. I’ve completed everything from brochure-ware WordPress setups to ecommerce integrations and custom application development.

No matter the size of a project, the goal is always the same: find a clean and direct solution that solves the problem in a way that is both beautiful and user-friendly.
