somenice is the creative services of Andrew Smith.

Self described designer-developer generalist; I have been crafting better user experiences since 1999. Principled yet pragmatic, empathetic and analytical, I'm as comfortable with art as I am algorithms. My goals are to create beautiful things that tell a story, use data and best practices where possible, and exceed business expectations where applicable.

Andrew Smith

Located in the coast mountain resort town of Whistler BC Canada, I've had the pleasure of working with such clients and employers as Whistler Blackcomb, Tourism Whistler, Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival and the World Ski & Snowboard Festival.

When not creating with the computer, I can be found hacking electronics, making art, shooting photo & video, and enjoying outdoor life in the mountains with my family.

More of what I do

I design and build engaging experiences.

A collection of code, composition, colour, conversation, and convincing.

Some of my work.

Small images hardly tell the full story of what went into any work. The constraints and challenges under which anything is created are lengthy and varying. This does, however, give you a sample of my visual style. An aesthetic impression.
