Justin Bend

Interaction Designer / Developer

Hello. Welcome.


I have been working professionally and successfully in this field for over a decade. My main areas of focus are UI/UX and digital design, front-end web development, systems integration, data specification, security, technical documentation, operations development and management of technical projects and staff.


Some fun facts about me:


I'm a triplet. My wife and I are originally from Illinois. I'm from the tiny town of Mendota. My first job was detasseling corn at twelve years old. I've built grain bins, worked in a printing press and was a night shift working member of the Teamsters Union for two and a half years while pursuing my undergraduate degree.

In Chicago, in 2006, I worked for President Barack Obama (that's me, on the right) as a Senate intern concentrating on Veterans Affairs while my brother was in Iraq with the Marines.

I moved to Washington DC in 2010. In a past life I was an award-winning amateur singer. I know how to juggle.

I designed and developed this website.
