Joe Manson Senior Web Developer

Joe is an avid problem solver and fun haver. When not focusing on building websites, answering anyone’s question about anything, or brushing up on the latest trends in web development Joe is kicking butt and taking names at ping pong or an office nerf battle.

Coming from the University of Maryland College Park Joe studied 3 years in Physics before shifting into Graphic Design to graduate with an Art Studio degree. Joe’s interest in both the logic and aesthetic lends a unique perspective on delivering complete website builds that consider every aspect of the user experience.

Constantly pushing the team to consider other possibilities and think outside the box, Joe has enhanced Liquified Creative’s processes and provided an encouraging persona to the crew.
