Hello there

I'm Charlie Duong. I am a creative thinker, creator, and life-long learner.

I use design and technology as a tool to tell a narrative. I create things that are modular with subtle animations and beautiful color palettes. I believe that design is symbiotic with usability, one cannot exist without the other.


I live and work in Washington, D.C. at openbox9 as a Front-End Developer.

My role is focused on bringing designs to life by implementing creative solutions for user interfaces and experiences to help our clients convey their unique story.

Previously, I worked as a Designer/Developer where I created and executed meaningful UX at the US International Trade Administration. Prior to that, I worked as a Technical Analyst where I learned a great deal about web development and its best practices. I wore many hats - working on software testing, user training, and information architecture.

When my eyes aren’t glued to the screen, I enjoy nerding out about music, taking food pictures, and searching for the perfect cup of coffee.


During my free time I also enjoy working on personal projects and experiments.


I've had the great honor of working with clients from all different types of industries, each with their own story told through design and technology.
