Don't Talk to Robots

Creating experiences that

Communicate with People.

Don't Talk to Robots, the portfolio of designer and developer Doug Vander Meulen.



My name is Doug Vander Meulen and Don't Talk to Robots is my online portfolio. I love to create. Every saturday morning of my youth was spent on my living room floor thinking of different creations I could make with the LEGO bricks spread out in front of me.

As a web developer and graphic designer, I have the privilege of helping clients create unique and memorable experiences. I enjoy the entire creative process, having built up experience the last 13 years in visual design, front-end web development and back-end web development. I strive to communicate clear messages that call users to action. I want to create things that help others succeed and make the world a better place.

I live in Chicago, IL with my wife, Mara, and children, Brinley, Kaelyn, Skylar and Matthias.
