Contact name is Dave Abrahamsen and since 2002 my motto has been, “please evolve.” This phrase is a reminder for me to continue to learn, experience and grow. Personally and professionally, I am always looking to expand my abilities to create and solve problems. This website is a showcase of that expansion relating to identity, interactive and motion design. Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for my full site!

C is for Cocoa

Just started my dive into learning how to develop apps for the iPhone and iPad. A great overview of C programming can be found here -> Learn C for Cocoa. I know Flash is an option now, but I want to try my hand at learning another coding language.

What do you want to learn?

To give back to the design and development community I will be posting tutorials and articles on graphic design, Flash, PHP, jQuery and more. Feel free to email me with any requests.
It's alive in 2010...finally

Over the past 5 years the website of PLEASE EVOLVE has been neglected. In place of a real site, a very static, outdated and under developed home page has polluted the internet. Being embarrassed to show this to even a dog, I decided it was time to let the world know what I've learned and worked on.

Take a look at my featured projects and come back often to see the latest updates (mobile optimized version, more work samples and eventually a fully functional website).
