About David Sparks
My name is David Sparks. I'm a lover of science, usability, color, equality, art, sculpting, sketching, basketball and ideas. How people use things is my passion.
Born and raised in Memphis, TN. I have developed my skills as a User Experience professional through 11+ years of interactive marketing experience. I'm driven by a desire to make things usable and accessible.
I started making websites at age 17 because of my activity in the local underground music scene in the early to late 2000's. I have been obsessed with creating websites and applications ever since.
From 2006-2011, I held Interactive Developer positions at three companies, and since 2013 I've been a User Experience Architect at Archer Malmo.
I’m responsible for usability, user research, user interface design, information architecture, prototyping and other information design responsibilities.
At Archer Malmo, I oversee a wide range of user-focused tasks on multiple digital projects and clients. Discovery, flows, diagrams, wireframing, testing and research to name a few. I also work across departments to keep user needs and business goals front and center.
