How custom elements have disrupted the structure of our components, encouraging us to broaden the scope of patterns we once considered foundational.
Partner, Vice President
Tyler joined Cloud Four in 2013, becoming a partner and VP of Design four years later. Prior to that, he led multi-disciplinary teams at a Bay Area stealth startup and the agency arm of WE Communications, where his clients included Microsoft and Sasquatch! Music Festival.
Tyler’s love of side projects is well-documented. In 2010 he co-founded Backabit, a two-person indie game studio. Their first game reached number eight in the US App Store paid charts after it was featured by Apple, who called it “a simple and stylish physics puzzler you won’t want to put down.” He’s also the creator of Colorpeek, a web app and Chrome extension for simply sharing and previewing colors.
Tyler has presented at numerous conferences, including Smashing Conference, CascadiaFest, Techweek Chicago and the inaugural CyborgCamp. He once taught courses in Internet Typography and Web Standards as an adjunct professor at the (now defunct) Art Institute of Portland.
