A Little Bit About Myself

My name is Russell "Trio" Gallien III, and I specialize in Responsive Web Development, and Graphic Design. I've been an artist my entire life and I'm constantly looking toward new media and current techniques to push my passion for design to the cutting edge. The term "Rather Genius" is a affirmation of how I feel about craft, in general, as well as the brilliant clients I encounter on a regular basis who are striving to make their visions a reality. I'm truly grateful to be a part of that work. Contained in this site are some examples of such visions; ranging from Identity Development for business entities to Illustration and Animation. Feel free to browse around, and if you have any questions or would even like to start a project of your own, you can contact me using the link at the bottom of the page(s). Thanks for visiting RatherGenius.com!

My Process

I Use C3PO To Do My Work

1. Caffeination

This is the most important first-step for any project. Coffee helps get the wheels turning!

2. Preperation

Use of tools to organize the project scope, communicate with clients, and solidify a plan of action after discovery.

3. Pre-Production

Putting structure to the plan of action using sketches, wireframes, and mock-ups to create a road map.

4. Production

Building what will become the final product, using the best tools for the task at hand.

5. Optimization

Making things cleaner, faster, and sharper for the best presentation and/or performance, once production has reached it's final stages, .
