Deven James Langston

I can make that!

After a decade of professional experience with 2D and 3D motion graphics, Deven James Langston can make just about everything you see on-screen that didn’t come through a camera lens. He also has a bunch of camera lenses and uses them. His skill set bridges the gap between the creative and the logical. He feels equally at home talking to creative directors and mechanical engineers. Deven is an artist. He knows little to nothing about history or politics (although he’s becoming more interested in the former), and is terrible at debating. So much for being well-rounded.

Deven is currently a full-time traveler living the #rvlife along with his wife @theladylangston. He brought all of his computers with him though, and is still available for freelance work.

Personal Patterns Project

Deven enjoys photography. After successfully completing the “365 challenge,” for which he took one photo every day for a year, he decided to keep going. It has now been almost 3 years and Deven is proud to say he has not missed a single day! Check out some of the cool patterns he’s found:
