About Me

My name is Patrick McNeil and I am a St. Louis based UX Designer teaching at the University of MO St. Louis. I teach in the Graphic Design program where I focus on UX Design, Interaction Design and front end development techniques. I received my masters degree in Human Computer Interaction from DePaul University.  I am also the author of six books on web design known as The Web Designer's Idea Books. This best selling series is my outlet for dissecting the various visual design trends happening in the industry.

My passion for the web is a result of the incredible way we get to blend visual design, technical know how and good UX practices all in one ever changing medium. This merging point is not only my passion, but my strong point. I love to cross the lines between these worlds and help each side better understand the other.
